This recipe for gnocchi with pumpkin and fine herbs sausages is pretty amazing. I used canned pumpkin puree and the result is quite surprising! Do not wait for next Halloween to try this kick ass recipe.


  • 1 lb fresh gnocchi
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Olive oil
  • The meat of 4 fine herbs sausages by Maillard
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme  + a little for the service
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Romano pecorino cheese + a little for the service
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 pinches nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper from the mill


  • In a large saucepan filled with salted boiling water, cook the gnocchi according to the directions on the package. Pour into a colander, rinse lightly and drain. Set aside.
  • In the same saucepan over medium heat, add the onion, garlic and a drizzle of olive oil. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring. Season with salt and pepper.

A ''super toscan'' affordable! The super toscans are wines elaborated from typical italian variety blended with international grapes variety. Sangiovese, cabernet, merlot...


The notes of roasted hazelnuts, roasted nuts and caramel of this beer will wonderfully complement the aromas of cheese, pumpkin and of the gnocchi. Very dry, it will sway the fat of the cheese.
