Gnocchi With Pumpkin Rosemary Sauce

For a fast, easy and healthy dinner, turn to canned pumpkin and whole-wheat gnocchi (pronounced “NOH-kee”) to make this gnocchi with pumpkin rosemary sauce recipe.

Little Italian dumplings made from potatoes and flour, gnocchi cook in just three minutes. Rosemary-spiked pumpkin sauce uses part-skim ricotta cheese instead of heavy cream to keep fat low.

One serving of this savory dish overflows with antioxidant-rich vitamin A from the pumpkin -- over 300 percent of your daily needs! Look for packages of gnocchi in the pasta aisle.
