    Method

    1. Cut the pumpkin into 1cm thick slices, peel and seed.
    2. Lay them on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper and add some salt.
    3. Transfer to oven and cook at 160° for 20/30 minutes. Press the tines of a fork into the flesh to check if the pumpkin is done. If it is soft, remove from the oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes.
    4. Using a fork, press pumpkin slices until creamy. Combine with 1 egg, flour, grated Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Knead by hand until ingredients are well combined and the dough is smooth.
    5. Bring salted water to the boil. Meanwhile, melt a dab of butter with some sage into a pan.
    6. Place the dough over a floured pastry board. Divide into smaller parts and roll into long strips. Cut into pieces, about the size of big hazelnut. Shape them by hand or using a gnocchi board.
    7. Cook your pumpkin gnocchi in boiling water until they rise to the top. Using a slotted spoon, transfer gnocchi to the pan and toss to combine with butter and sage. Serve.
