Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Tip the squash into a roasting tin with the garlic and oil, salt and pepper and mix well. Roast for 20 mins, shaking the pan halfway through, until tender and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the gnocchi according to pack instructions. With a few secs to go, throw in the spinach, then drain the gnocchi and spinach together. Tip into the roasting tin, then mix everything together well, mashing the softened garlic. Spoon onto warm serving plates, then crumble over the cheese to serve.

Loved this, so beautiful! I used 1kg of squash and put some chilli and thyme in for roasting. I also added a punnet of tomatoes to roast for the final 10 minutes, as it looked a bit dry. Could have done with more goat's cheese.

This recipe is so simple and easy to do but the flavour combinations work so well. I've done this many times and my guests always love it. For a quick mid-week, lower-calorie version, I leave out the gnocchi and roast more butternut squash!

Only criticism - these ingredient quantities do not make 4 portions in my book - much more like 3.

I made the whole recipe and shared it between 2...very yummy! I tried it with spray oil instead of olive oil but had to add some olive oil at the end to pull it all together. I added a LOT more garlic. A keeper!

I first cooked this about 5 years ago, and keep coming back to it for dinner parties and guests because it's always gone down so well. It's a great option for vegetarians to cook for meat eaters.

Very tasty and looked lovely. I don't think my boyfriend even noticed that there wasn't any meat in it! I used 3 cloves of garlic and it was perfect. I am looking forward to cooking this again when I receive another squash in my veg box.

Really tasty mid-week dinner, and healthy too! Would recommend adding extra garlic as well...

My boyfriend doesn't like goat's cheese, so he had it with feta instead, and still seemed to really enjoy it.

I have made this recipe a couple of times. I used the last of the Christmas stilton instead of goats cheese and threw in some mushrooms to roast towards the end of the squash cooking time, it was delicious.

Did a variarion, leaving out spinach and goat cheese, but adding roasted bacon and sage leaves. As well, replaced butternut with hokaido..
Really delicious!

As a tip, if your gnocchi become dry, use a few spoons of vegetable stock!

Looks amazing. Very tasty & easy to make. Needed to roast the squash for 30 mins but maybe it is my oven. Would also recommend adding more garlic.

Delicious! I replaced the normal goats cheese with a spreadable version, adding it to the gnocchi and spinach when they were still hot. The cheese then melts and covers everything in a nice saucy texture. I also added more garlic, and roasted the squash for longer.

Delicious. We added a chopped red pepper to the butternut squash when roasting for added colour and taste. It also added to our veg in take for the day. This dish has become a regular on our dinner table.

It was quick and simple to make. But I hated the taste of the goat's cheese and had to add alot of salt n pepper to get rid of the taste. It is quite a bland meal.
