Chef's advice
“Gnocchi alla zucca” is a typical product of the mantuan cuisine tradition.
For a more rich dish, replace the tomatoe sauce with a tasty “ragù di salsiccia” (sausage ragout): fry slightly a minced onion and a really good chopped pork sausage; add a clove of garlic and some fresh tomatoe pulp.
The recommended wine is Valcalepio Bianco (white) or Rosso della Signoria (red).
