What a delightful take on the traditional gnocchi dish. This recipe uses kabocha squash in place of potatoes and buckwheat flour (make sure to use raw buckwheat to avoid brown color!) in place of regular flour. The squash gives the gnocchi a wonderful hint of sweetness and melt-in-your-mouth, pillow-y texture. Absolutely delicious!
