1 medium sweet potato, baked and cooled
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, mash the baked sweet potato with a fork until smooth.
Stir in the flour, salt, and pepper. Add the egg and orange juice, and mix until a soft dough forms.
On a floured surface, roll the dough into a long, thin rope, about 1/2 inch thick. Cut the rope into 1/2-inch pieces.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the gnocchi to the pot and cook for 3-4 minutes, until they float to the surface.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the gnocchi to a colander to drain.
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the cooked gnocchi to the skillet and toss to coat them in the butter.
Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top of the gnocchi. Serve hot.
