The Jury was Unanimous

Seven words: Pumpkin gnocchi with brown butter and sage.

I rest my case.

Ingredients (I doubled this recipe strategically for leftovers)
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 3/4 cups flour - plus more for your work surface
2 tablespoons butter
2-3 tablespoons of shredded sage leaves
2-3 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt

Set a large pot of water to boil. Combine pumpkin, egg, nutmeg and salt. Add in the flour, a bit at a time, stirring to combine. Continue adding flour until the dough is firm enough to handle (it will still be slightly sticky).

Take about a quarter of the dough and roll into one long rope, about one inch thick. Cut rope into one inch pieces. Repeat with remaining dough. Drop pieces of dough into boiling water. Cook until they rise to the surface (about five minutes).

Meanwhile, melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add sage and stir frequently until butter browns. (Browning butter is a science.) Drain gnocchi on paper towel and add to brown butter. Toss to combine. Serve with parmesan cheese.

This is my "Look at me! I'm making gnocchi" face.

I froze the gnocchi for a few minutes to ensure they didn't fall apart on me. Worked wonders! (That's a Maddie trick!)

P.S. Crossing something off my 30 before Thirty list!
