Pan-Fried Pumpkin Gnocchi from Steamy Kitchen

From Jenny Also Cooks

Ever since giving in and setting up all the blogs I follow on Google Reader (best invention ever), I find it easier to catch up with some of my favorite cooking and baking bloggers. But then they post recipes I want to try making. Over at Steamy Kitchen I stumbled across this recipe for Pan-Fried Pumpkin Gnocchi with Sage Browned Butter Sauce. I have tried making gnocchi to disastrous ends one time in the past, because I guesstimated at the weight of a butternut squash (bad idea). I also haven't really enjoyed gnocchi we get at the store, but I'm married to a man who adores anything in dumpling form. This looked easy, so I went ahead and tried it. It was simple, tasted delicious, and I'd recommend it. I would recommend really making sure your pan has cooled off before adding that balsamic vinegar though.

Since most gnocchi at the store has ridges, I rolled mine along my tomato slicer before frying them.
