It’s hard to beat the satisfying feeling after a plate of too much gnocchi. This Pumpkin Sage Gnocchi has those delicious fall flavors and seems like a special occasion recipe, but is actually very simple to make!

Pumpkin Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp sage, thinly sliced into strips (you really can’t over do this…)
  • 2-4 cloves garlic to taste
  • 2 tbsp shallots, minced
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup chicken stock (we use Better than Bullion)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley

plus servings of gnocchi enough for 4

(we went with a package of gnocchi here… 5 min work vs. an hour is not even a question… 😉


Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add sage leaves and fry until fragrant and lightly golden in color. Add the garlic and shallots and cook for about 2 minutes until tender – but not browned.

Add in milk, pumpkin puree, chicken stock, salt, and pepper, whisk to combine. Stir and simmer for about 5 to 7 minutes, until mixture is thickened.

Add Parmesan cheese and whisk to combine.

Keep warm over low heat as you cook the gnocchi.

Bring a medium-sized pot of salted water to a boil. Cook gnocchi until they float to the surface.

Drain and toss cooked gnocchi into the pumpkin sauce. Top with a little bit of pepper, grated Parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley.
