  3. Remove from the oven and let cool, then scoop the flesh of the pumpkin into a bowl and mash it with a potato ricer.
  4. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  5. Add the flour, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt to the bowl with the pumpkin and stir briefly to combine.

  8. Add the gnocchi to the boiling water and cook until they start to float, then cook for 1 minute more. Drain the gnocchi and return them to the pot.
  9. Toss the gnocchi with the sage pesto, add the tomatoes and serve.
