A note about serious food allergies

If you were to describe this meal in three simple words, it would be these: soft, sweet, and rich. Both butternut squash and gnocchi are nicely soft for the tooth, and butternut provides delightful sweetness. But the richness… gnocchi, Alfredo sauce, and Asiago all combine together for a decadence that'll lift your soul. You'll need to open a second bank account after eating this meal.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using protein, pat dry and cook in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat with 1 tsp. olive oil. If using diced chicken breasts, stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using ground beef, break up until beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. If using Impossible burger, break up until burger is heated through, 4-6 minutes. If using Italian sausage, remove from casing, if necessary, and break up until sausage reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Add to gnocchi as desired.

  1. 1

    Roast the Butternut Squash

    Halve any large butternut squash pieces to roughly match smaller pieces.

    Place butternut squash on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt. Massage oil and salt into butternut squash.

    Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until tender, 22-24 minutes, gently flipping once halfway through.

    While butternut squash roasts, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Kale

    Stem kale and coarsely chop.

  3. 3

    Cook the Gnocchi

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil.

    Add gnocchi to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 4-6 minutes.

    Transfer gnocchi to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  4. 4

    Start the Sauce

    Add kale to hot pan and stir occasionally until wilted, 1-2 minutes.

    Add cream base, 1/4 cup water, a pinch of salt and pepper, and garlic pepper. Stir until combined, 30-60 seconds.

  5. 5

    Finish Sauce and Finish Dish

    Add gnocchi and butternut squash to hot pan. Stir constantly until warmed through and sauce coats gnocchi, 1-2 minutes.

    If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Remove from burner. Add red pepper flakes (to taste).
