Learn how to make squash gnocchi in a smoked pork sauce by chef Renzo Garibaldi of Osso in Lima, in the step-by-step recipe below. 

Step 01

Squash gnocchi

Bake the pumpkin and the potatoes until cooked. Extract the pulp and sift. Mix the cheese and salt with the flour. Make gnocchi of 10 g each.


Step 02

Smoked pork belly sauce

Cook all the sauce on the coals.

Cut the bacon into 1 x 1 cubes. Start in a cast-iron pot and, once it has released all its fat and the bacon cubes are well browned, add the onion.

When the onion is caramelised, add the tomato, garlic, basil and bay leaves. Cook well until you get a paste.

Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the stock and the butter and reduce to obtain a sauce texture.


Step 03


Blanch the gnocchi for 3 minutes, reserve in a tray with olive oil. Regenerate the sauce with a little beef stock.

On the grill, seal the gnocchi on a special rack on both sides. Return them to the pan with the sauce and serve accompanied with grated Parmigiano and fried basil.
