September has slowly arrived and I got into a brutal autumn mood, and that can be seen on my cooking as well. The cinnamon has come out of the pantry, my shopping basket was filled with various pumpkins. And if it’s cold weather, it means that more comfort food has been put on the table for dinner. And there’s nothing better on a rainy evening than a good baked gnocchi in pumpkin sauce with lots and lots of cheese. Super fast and easy to make. If, on the other hand, you want a more challenging one, make your pasta at home.
