  • 2 16 ounce packages Gnocchi
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Shallot minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2/3 cup White Wine
  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 1 1/2 cups Vegetable Broth
  • 1 cup Canned Pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup Milk any type
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Thyme Leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • pinch Nutmeg
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese for garnishing


  • Mince the shallot and garlic cloves.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook for 2 minutes or until tender.
  • Add the garlic and white wine, and cook for 5 minutes or until most of the liquid has absorbed.
  • Add the vegetable broth, and whisk in the tomato paste.
  • Whisk in the pumpkin, then add the milk, thyme, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, then lower heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • While the sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the gnocchi according to package directions.
  • Drain the gnocchi and stir them into the pumpkin sauce.
  • Sprinkle with black pepper, and garnish with parmesan cheese and additional fresh thyme if desired.


  • You may substitute 1 teaspoon of dried thyme leaves, in place of the fresh thyme.
  • I used oat milk, but any type of milk will do.
  • This pumpkin gnocchi can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Freezing is not recommended, as the gnocchi will become mushy.
