      This truly hit the spot. The "spot" being my insatiable yearning for anything made with butternut squash! I do a handmade ravioli, and a lasagne, using this lovely gourd, but these are truly all-day-long commitments...this dish gives the flavor without all the assembly work! Now, I agree with the other reviewers that the gnocchi dough needed some punchin' up with other herbs/spices; I added some chopped fresh sage, nutmeg, and garlic. Also, I added some chopped toasted pecans (very salty) to the sage butter. Deeeeeeelicious!

      Really good once you add about 2 extra cups flour and some spices like cumin, cinnamon, cayenne!

      Excellent. I added garlic, pepper, and nutmeg for a little more flavor, but excellent recipe.
