Method

Pumpkin, Roast Pepper and Feta Gnocchi is a community recipe submitted by Miss B and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Roast peppers in a 200 degree Celsius oven for 10-15 mins or until skins start to darken. Remove from oven and seal in a plastic bag until cooled. Peel skins and chop flesh into strips or pieces.
  • Meanwhile boil pumpkin pieces with 2 cloves garlic in vegetable stock until soft. Drain and reserve about ½ cup of stock.
  • Melt butter in saucepan, add chopped onions and let sweat for a couple of minutes, add pumpkin and capsicum and stir until pumpkin starts forming pulp.
  • Add stock to make a think sauce consistency. Add crumbled feta At this point I use a handheld chopper/mini-mixer to chop the peppers and mix all together in the saucepan while stove still on - ends up a creamy orange/red sauce. (A food processor would work too - but be more messy!) Add salt, pepper and basil to tast.
  • Boil gnocchi in pot of salted water.
  • Drain gnocchi and add sauce and serve.
