I saw Alton Brown making these dumplings on the Food Network a few nights ago, and when he was just about to taste them, he got distracted by something and never took a bite. I was so disappointed, that I had to go and make them myself.

The recipe states to use "1 1/2 small butternut squash", but I think it really meant to say to use one small squash, because that's what he did on the show.
The squash I used was actually pretty large...I didn't use all that I scraped out of it. I froze almost half of what I got, and still think I had a bit too much. Or maybe just needed more flour. It was a pretty wet dough.
After getting the dough all mixed up, you make several snakes shapes and cut them into pieces.
This is the only time I've made any type of dumpling other than chicken and dumplings so I really enjoyed it.
The reviews of this recipe were not very flattering over all, but I thought it was pretty good.
But I supposed anything sauteed in butter and sage is probably okay with me.
