It’s a deceptively simple dish that you can have on the table in about half an hour, making it perfect for mid week dinners. I really love the texture you get from pan frying the gnocchi instead of boiling it, but be sure not to overcrowd your pan too much so you can turn the gnocchi as required.

Make sure you don’t lose the juices in the roasting pan either, pop them in the final dish when you add the pumpkin for maximum flavour! Pumpkin, mushroom & kale gnocchi is winter food at its best!
