Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Alfredo Sauce
1 (40-oz.) or 2 ½ (29-oz.) cans Dunbars Natures Pride® Cut Sweet Potatoes, drained and mashed
1 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 tablespoon chopped sage
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
¼ teaspoon turmeric
1 large egg, lightly beaten
½ teaspoon coriander
½ teaspoon white pepper
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, unbleached (plus 1/3 cup for work surface)
1/3 teaspoon salt for cooking water
Alfredo Sauce, store-bought or use recipe below
In a large bowl, mix together the mashed sweet potatoes thyme, sage, nutmeg, Old Bay, turmeric, egg, coriander, and white pepper. Add the flour ½ of a cup at a time until a soft dough forms. Dust a work service with the remaining ½ cup of flour. Divide the dough into 6 equal balls. Roll out each ball into a 1-inch wide rope and cut each rope into 1 inch pieces. Roll the gnocchi over the tines of a fork. Transfer the gnocchi to a large baking sheet. Continue with the remaining gnocchi.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the gnocchi and cook until tender stirring occasionally, about 5-6 minutes. Drain the gnocchi using a perforated spoon onto a baking sheet. Serve with Alfredo sauce or brown butter, sage tempura, and pecans.
