Butternut Squash Gnocchi with Creamy Lemon Butter Sauce

Darpan News Desk, 12 Dec, 2018
  • Butternut Squash Gnocchi with Creamy Lemon Butter Sauce

Serve these tender potato and squash dumplings as part of your holiday spread in lieu of mashed potatoes – just be sure to double the recipe if you’re feeding a large crowd. Arugula adds a slight bitterness to the dish that complements the sweetness of the squash, but you can use baby spinach for a milder flavour.

DIRECTIONS
