Ingredients

How to make it

  • Mash sweet potato in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Add ricotta cheese gradually.
  • Add Parmesan cheese, brown sugar, salt, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon.
  • Mash everything together. Mix in flour gradually until a dough forms.
  • Turn dough out onto floured surface and divide into six equal pieces.
  • Rolling between palms and floured work surface, form each piece into 20-inch-long rope, sprinkling with flour as needed if sticky.
  • Cut each rope into 20 pieces.
  • Make an imprint with a fork on each piece.
  • Bring large pot of water to boil, add a handful of salt, and return to boil.
  • Don't overcrowd the pot and boil pasta until it floats to the top, about five minutes.
  • Melt butter in heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook for about five minutes and then add sage.
  • Top gnocchi with sage butter and serve immediately

    Yay Michael! I'm back and I am using this great recipe for gnocchi tonight to pair up with a Moroccan-spiced ratatouille. Can't wait to let you know how it turns out. :)

    This sounds wonderful! My Italian friend taught me how to make potato gnocci about 25 years ago, and it's always been a favorite, but now I think I've got to try your sweet potato version! Thanks!

    OMG! This recipe has to be wonderful and cozy. I love pumpkin ravioli with sage brown butter and this has similar elements. Are you hosting a dinner for we lazy-asses anytime soon, perchance?

    Gorgeous recipe Trigger- I do something similar with pumpkin, but this looks fantastic! I like to fry a sage leaf or two for garnish... and it's delicious.
