Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Sage and Pecans

Sweet potatoes are readily available during the cooler months and are a delicious accompaniment to all sorts of dishes. Sweet potatoes are low in calories and contain no saturated fats or cholesterol. They are a rich source of dietary fiber. They are also an excellent source of the powerful natural antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin A. Vitamin A is also required by the body to maintain the integrity of healthy mucus membranes and skin and is a vital nutrient for vision.
