I know I swore I wouldn’t do a pumpkin recipe this year, but then I joined the Crazy Ingredient Challenge. Each month the group picks two ingredients and makes a recipe with them. This month we chose Pumpkin and Bacon.
So, I had to give in and come up with a pumpkin recipe.
So in a burst of inspiration, I created this delicious Pumpkin Gnocchi with Bacon Alfredo.
In case you don’t know, Gnocchi is a simple little potato dumpling that is boiled and served like pasta. I just added a little pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg to the recipe. Then I made Alfredo with bacon grease instead of butter. You can use a jarred sauce, but this sauce is very easy to make.
Like most recipes I post, this one is quite adaptable. I made my gnocchi with a Gluten Free flour blend I have. You can use that or all purpose flour as you see fit. If you don’t like pumpkin, you can use another vegetable puree. You could also leave out the bacon to make it a meatless meal.
I hope you enjoy the recipe, and be sure to check out the Crazy Ingredient Challenge recipes that the other bloggers created.
Until next time, happy eating.
