Let's Make It
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil.
In a large skillet set to medium heat, add chopped bacon and fry until just crisp. Add sage and garlic. Sauté for 1 minute.
Add pumpkin puree, whisking constantly until heated through. Slowly add 1/2 cup milk while continuing to whisk pumpkin mixture. If sauce is too thick, stir in additional milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
Once water is boiling, add gnocchi. Cook until gnocchi float to the top of the water, 2-3 minutes.
Whisk Parmesan, pepper and nutmeg into the sauce as the gnocchi boils.
Toss drained gnocchi in sauce. Serve with additional shredded Parmesan and sage leaves for garnish, if desired.
For a richer sauce, substitute some of the milk for cream. This sauce is also delicious with penne, fusilli, orecchiette or any other small pasta shape.
