Directions

Heat 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil in a saucepan. Add the butternut squash, salt, and pepper and saute until the butternut squash is fork tender. Transfer the squash mixture to a bowl. Using the back of a fork, mash until the squash is an even mixture. Let cool.

Add the ricotta cheese, 1 cup Parmigiano cheese, flour, and an egg. Mix thoroughly until the mixture becomes a soft dough. Cook's Note: You may need to add more flour if the mixture is too moist.

Using your hands, scoop enough of the mixture to roll into the size of a golf ball. Repeat with the remaining mixture.

Place the gnudi balls in a pot of boiling salted water for about 1 minute, or until they float to the surface. Drain and plate.

Drizzle the gnudi balls with the remaining extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with Parmigiano cheese.

    A truly delicious recipe. I'm surprised at the bad reviews. The flavor is light, but the little pillows melt in your mouth and are soooo good! I do use more squash than the recipe calls for and I taste the mix before boiling them to adjust the ingredients. I hope you give it another try!

    I liked the ideas of the dish, but with the squash I used - it was bland. Next time i try it I might add some saute white onion and add some oregon.
