Weight Watchers Gnocchi with Pumpkin and Sage

This might sound a little weird or gross, but trust me, it is DELICIOUS. It does not taste like pumpkin, I promise! It's just nice and creamy and mushroomy and just good. Makes 4 servings, 1 cup is a serving. Per serving: 7 points, 324 calories, 8.9g fat, 9.3g protein, 53.6g carbs
