Nutritional values

Pumpkins have it all - when it comes to vitamins, they score points above all with vitamin C and folic acid, when it comes to minerals, with potassium. The biggest plus: the cell protector beta-carotene.

Should it taste sweet? Then prepare the gnocchi with apples instead of pumpkin and with hazelnuts instead of pumpkin seeds.
