Method1. Place the mashed potato and squash in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the egg, nutmeg, ¾ of the grated grana padano cheese, flour and a pinch of salt.
2. Mix by hand to form dough and knead for a few minutes. Cut the dough into smaller pieces and roll each piece into a cylinder. Cut each cylinder into 2½cm pieces.
3. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil. Add the gnocchi and when they rise to the top, remove from the saucepan with a slotted spoon and refresh in iced water. Drain, drizzle with olive oil and keep warm.
4. Deep fry the sage leaves in a deep fryer or in a pan with very hot oil.
5. In a a separate pan, sweat the shallots and butter in a pan and then add the gnocchi and sauté.
6. To serve, sprinkle the remaining grana padano on top with a crispy fried sage leaf.
