Test Kitchen Tips

Some pumpkin will start to stick to the pan towards the end of cooking, that’s OK, just stir continuously.

BROWN BUTTER SAUCE: Melt 8 Tbsp. unsalted butter in a skillet over medium heat, swirling, until it smells nutty and brown flecks appear. Off heat, add a squeeze of lemon juice and salt to taste; cover sauce to keep warm.


Cook pumpkin in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until it dries out significantly and measures 5 oz. (about ½ cup), about 25 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Prepare gnocchi according to recipe directions up through scooping flesh from potatoes.

Press 15 oz. potatoes along with cooked pumpkin through a ricer fitted with the finest disk onto a clean work surface. Continue preparing, cooking, and tossing gnocchi with Brown Butter Sauce according to recipe directions (see Test Kitchen Tips).
