As the weather turns colder, there's nothing more comforting than a bowl of warming gnocchi. Whilst you roast your seasonal British squash, you'll also be creating a delicious sage burnt butter sauce (known as a 'beurre noisette'). You'll then stir in the gnocchi, before topping your dish off with crispy bacon shards.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Squash & Sage Gnocchi With Bacon

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Boil a kettle, then slice the seasonal squash in half and scoop out the seeds, discarding them

Tip: for easier chopping, use a bread knife (oiling the knife helps too!)

Note: our seasonal squashes will come in all colours, shapes and sizes, but don't worry – the method will stay the same!

2 Squash & Sage Gnocchi With Bacon

Slice each squash half into 1cm wedges

Add the squash wedges to a baking tray and put the tray in the oven for 20-22 min or until softened with a slight bite

Meanwhile, strip the sage leaves and chop them finely, discarding the stems

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

3 Squash & Sage Gnocchi With Bacon

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Add the smoked streaky bacon and cook for 3-4 min or until crisp, turning once halfway 

Once crisp, transfer it to a plate and set aside

Reserve the pan

4 Squash & Sage Gnocchi With Bacon

Meanwhile, add the gnocchi to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the gnocchi for 3 min or until it begins to rise to the top of the pot

Once done, drain the gnocchi, reserving a cup of the starchy cooking water

5 Squash & Sage Gnocchi With Bacon

Meanwhile, wipe the bacon pan clean with kitchen paper and return it to a medium heat

Add 50g [100g] butter with the chopped garlic and chopped sage and cook for 2 min or until foaming and beginning to turn a light brown colour – this is your sage burnt butter

 

6 Squash & Sage Gnocchi With Bacon

Meanwhile, break the crispy bacon into shards (clean hands is the best way!)

7 Squash & Sage Gnocchi With Bacon

Add the drained gnocchi to the sage burnt butter with the roasted squash wedges and half the grated Italian hard cheese

Season with a pinch of salt and a very generous grind of black pepper and give everything a good mix up

Tip: add a small splash of starchy cooking water if the sauce is looking a little dry!
