    2. Meanwhile boil potatoes until soft, peel and press with the pumpkin through a potato ricer, or mash them. Mix pumpkin-potato mixture with flour, semolina, egg, salt and pepper and knead into a smooth dough.
    3. Dust a tea towel with flour. Shape the dough with 2 tablespoons into gnocchi. Allow to rest on the floured cloth for 1 hour.

    had to add waaay more flour to get a dough. And then it was a floury dense horrid flavour and the pumpkin was undetectable. I dont think ill try it again  -  27 Oct 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    My 11year old son and I made this dish, it worked out well, we did add a little bit of fresh chopped rosemary into it. We served it with a creamy garlic chicken, cherry tomatoe,spinach and blue cheese sauce. Was yummy and kids loved it.  -  18 May 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
