  • cooking pot
  • mixer


  • 600 gr gnocchi aardappelpasta
  • 500 gr pumpkin
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 50 gr spinach
  • 200 ml vegetable broth
  • 4 tbl spoon mascarpone
  • 2 tbl spoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Cook the gnocchi in boiling water for 2-4 minutes, according to the instructions on the package. I bought potato gnocchi but sometimes I make them myself with spinach or carrot. When they are done, place them in a colander and set aside.
  • Cut the pumpkin flesh (500 g) into pieces of +/- 2 cm. Grate the garlic clove. Put the olive oil in a cooking pot and stew the garlic together with the pumpkin for 5 minutes. Pour over the broth. Place the lid on the pot and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Once the pumpkin is cooked, mix everything with a hand blender. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Put a tablespoon of olive oil in a pot and stew the spinach until the leaves have shrunk.
  • Add the gnocchi and spinach to the warm pumpkin sauce and mix. Serve on each plate with an extra spoonful of mascarpone cheese. I also added some color with extra dashes and herbs.


Gnocchi is not the type of pasta that is often in my shopping cart. Just because it reminds me of autumn and winter because it is so filling. Living in Spain, we mainly have blue skies and I don’t immediately associate that with warm comfort food…. But during the first “gota fría”, (= read the first cold days with rain) I long for those warming meals . And in autumn that is without a doubt a dish with pumpkin. So I’ve embarked on a delicious culinary journey with these potato gnocchi, tastefully topped with creamy pumpkin sauce and enriched with crispy spinach leaves. A harmonious combination of autumn flavors that will pamper your taste buds. Try these potato gnocchi with pumpkin sauce and spinach today for an unforgettable taste experience!”
