Here, Lauren proves to everyone that making homemade gnocchi is simpler than you may think.
I have always felt that making homemade pasta was much too long of a process for me to undertake, but with this simple recipe from Fine Cooking for rustic butternut squash gnocchi, it was really easy! I explicitly followed the recipe, including roasting the butternut squash with water which ensures that it doesn't caramelize. For me, caramelizing the butternut squash enhances the flavor, so next time and for anyone else that tries this recipe, I would let it brown just a little bit since it enhances the flavor so much. The whole process is still more complicated than just buying a bag of pasta, but I think this dish would make an excellent side dish for Thanksgiving with its rich and decadent flavor. Don't fear homemade pasta any longer, and get started on your very own butternut squash gnocchi.
