Inspiration behind the recipe
Coburn says, “I love pasta, pizza and all carbs. One of my favorite pasta dishes is gnocchi with brown butter, and I like to make it with butternut squash, acorn squash or sweet potato, for an extra bit of flavor. These veggies also give a little brighter color to the dish. If you want to get into the fall vibes, you can even make it with pumpkin. I often serve this with chicken apple sausage, but it is also delicious on its own with herbs and butter.”
When to make it, when to eat it
While this recipe is wonderfully simple, it requires a bit of time and planning.
Coburn says, “I like to make this recipe on an easy training day when I have a workout the next day. It provides great fuel for my workout, but also making it on an easy day is useful because it takes some time.”
