Creamy tomato gnocchi with prosciutto & roasted pumpkin - Soft, light little pillows of potato dough, cooked and mixed with a creamy tomato sauce, roasted pumpkin and crunchy prosciutto. Served with a citrus side salad.
1. Set oven to 220ºC. Toss pumpkin with 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper on a lined baking tray. Cook for 20 minutes, lay prosciutto over the top and cook for further 5 minutes.

2. Blend cherry tomatoes, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tbsp tomato paste and 1 cup water using a stick mixer. Dice onion and sauté in a frypan with 1 tbsp oil and 1 crushed garlic clove for 3 minutes. Pour in tomato sauce. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.

3. Turn the heat down to low, add cream cheese and whisk until melted and sauce is creamy. Trim, rinse and chop spinach, add to pan and season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue to simmer for further 5 minutes, uncovered.

4. Add gnocchi to the boiling water and cook until they float. Add to tomato sauce and stir in pumpkin and enough gnocchi water to ensure sauce is desired consistency (see note).

5. Rinse and tear lettuce. Slice orange and cucumber. Roughly chop walnuts. Arrange on a platter. Combine 1 tbsp olive oil with 1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Drizzle over salad (optional).

6. Break prosciutto into pieces. Serve gnocchi and sauce into bowls, top with prosciutto and serve with side salad.

Tip!
Sauce for the gnocchi should be the consistency of pouring cream so it covers the gnocchi generously.
