I came home today to find Lola already in the middle of making some pumpkin gnocchi (using a recipe from Cooking Light magazine) Since I'm writing this, I could claim that I took over and was responsible for how delicious and pretty they turned out. But actually Lola did most of the work while I made a salad and our dad sauteed some mushrooms in olive oil and garlic. While we were doing that, Lola made a gratin with the gnocchi, butter sauce, and some Parmesan cheese (also following the Cooking Light recipe). The pictures don't exactly capture it, but the gnocchi were a lovely orange color.
a little bland (not really that pumpkiny), but good and a nice texture. we ate the whole recipe between the four of us even though it says 6 servings. probably would be 6 servings as a side to meat or something heavier.
also, my dear sister is so modest. she was very helpful in making this.
