Gnocchi with squash and apple

4 comments Oct 31st, 2010 | By | Category: Pasta & Gnocchi, Recipes

The season is calling for recipes with squash. Also the apple fits the season well. Apple and squash are a great combination when it comes to sauces for Gnocchi. I am only describing the sauce here as you can find basic Gnocchi reicpes at offallytasty, at dailyvideorecipes and at wondertime.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

cooking time: 15 minutes – the sauce only

difficluty: easy


  • 11 ounces of butternut squash
  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1/2 vup of vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Dill
  • salt and pepper


Grind the squash and the apple.

Dice the onion and fry it in a pan with some butter until golden. Then add the squash and let it fry for a couple of minutes. Toss occasionally, then add the apple. Fry only very shortly, then add the stock and let it simmer for a while. Let the liquid evaporate. This should take about 10 minutes. Then add the finely chopped dill and the boiled gnocchi. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
