  • Summary

    Think gnocchi are too time-consuming to make during the week? Think again! These rustic dumplings get their super-soft texture from a combination of pumpkin, ricotta, and Parmesan cheese that comes together quickly in the food processor. The gnocchi cook up fast thanks to this awesome hack: Instead of tediously rolling the dough by hand, pipe it directly from a pastry bag into the boiling water, using a piece of butcher twine tied across the pot to "cut" the dough into pieces.

    Ingredients

    • 6 garlic cloves, divided
    • 2 large egg yolks
    • 1 cup canned pumpkin purée
    • 1 cup drained whole-milk ricotta (about 1/2 pound)
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 cup finely grated (about 1 1/4 ounces) plus 1/4 cup shaved Parmesan, divided
    • 2 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided, plus more
    • 1 1/8 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, divided, plus more
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 pound broccolini, trimmed, cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
    • 1 medium delicata squash (about 1 3/4 pounds), halved lengthwise, seeded, sliced crosswise into 1/4"-thick half-moons
    • Vegetable oil (for greasing)
    • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
    • A pastry bag with a 1" round tip; butcher's twine
