UpNorth Family: Pumpkin Gnocchi

Pumpkin Gnocchi

LEELANAU COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Who doesn't like a little pumpkin during the fall?

Lisa Maxbauer Price, a Traverse City mother and food writer, shares a delicious recipe for her Pumpkin Gnocchi!

Pumpkin Gnocchi


  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin purée
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 16-ounce package gnocchi
  • 4 ounces goat cheese


Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a large skillet, add the pumpkin purée and broth and stir to combine. Add nutmeg, brown sugar and salt. Cover and bring it to a high simmer. Then cook for 5 minutes until thickened. Remove pan from heat and stir in Greek yogurt until combined. Then place back on the heat for 3 more minutes. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Then add the gnocchi and boil until the gnocchi float, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain in a colander. You can serve the gnocchi topped with sauce right away, or add this step for a casserole-style dinner: Combine the gnocchi and sauce in a 9 x 9? baking dish, top with dollops of goat cheese and bake for 15 minutes (until bubbly).
