Pumpkin Puree I used to make these.
The pumpkin/butternut sauce I’d use with them.
First test, meh. it’s kind of difficult to put the ribs onto them…and maybe it’d be best if I chilled the dough, too. (my next test).
Anyhoo, using a butter knife to form the ridges, and so I’m holding it in my other hand (which deforms the ridges, . Try the chilling method next, and go from there, ).
Some with leeks others with parsley stems.
Made sure to use my mixer this time around.
How cute! What type of sauce do you use for that flavor? Regular marinara? I think a good bechamel sauce would be yummy, too!
Personally, I’d use my pumpkin or butternut sauce, but I don’t see why any other sauces wouldn’t work. The flavor is pretty much noodle like (Pumpkin puree, salt, and flour, and the pumpkin flavor is very subtle). O_o, which reminds me, I did take pics of making the pumpkin puree…Off to find those.
I make pumpkin ravioli…kids seem to like sweeter sauces with it…the butternut sounds so good…nutmeg…mmmm…I prefer savory sauces myself, but, easy enough to let everyone have a choice of sauces…the pumpkin shape is so clever!
Yeah, I’ve got plans to make a batch of pumpkin sauce to go with them, similar to this one I made before, but it’d be just something they could use if they want it.
I’m still kind of worried about the stems and my one year old granddaughter. I really think maybe just using green food coloring and a toothpick…PPpppppp!
Ok! a lot better. also, I decided to stop with the stems. I just hurt too much. :frown:
Anyway, I found a video of someone making these, and they used a string only from the top. Looks fine to me, and is a lot easier, heh.
So cute. And YUM, gnocchi!
These are the cutest things!
They are really festive looking! I bet they are delicious with that butternut squash sauce.
AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAaaaaaaaa!! I laugh like a maniacal super villain. Green food coloring works. So a toothpick with the tip snipped in a little green food coloring and about 1/4 tsp water.
And here is showing my process. The bowl has a little flour, and I shake the balls around. Then dump them onto the counter to form the “pumpkins”.
These are almost too cute to eat! Almost.
