Saturday Blog Showcase #1
Ann over at Thibeault’s Table and Lori at All That Splatters are starting Saturday Blog Showcase. Each Saturday will be a recipe from someone’s blog. If you wanna join in on the fun you can read about it over HERE.
This week I tried Butternut Squash Gnocchi from Hungry Cravings. I posted the recipe below but I encourage you to go check out her blog for all the detailed instructions. Also because she wrote that little copyright on her blog I don’t want to ‘steal’. I served them in a brown butter and sage sauce. On the side we had prosciutto and boursin cheese wrapped asparagus.
I have never made gnocchi before so I didn’t really have any idea how the end texture would turn out compared to my dough. I have made a lot of pasta and I think that is why mine turned out a little on the firm side. I did add more flour then was called for though, so I imagine when done as the recipe says they will be tender and delicious. They were tasty though, by no means a fail. I also think if I had cut the squash the night before and set it out to air dry a little that would help get rid of some excess moisture leading to my overly sticky dough.
