Why not? I'd give it a go.

I would make it into the gnocchi shapes, place them on a parchment lined baking tray and freeze them. Once frozen I'd portion them into freezer bags for longer term storage. I've done this with sweet potato gnocchi, and it's worked beautifully. You just boil them straight from the freezer.

I agree that you should roll them and cut them before freezing. Also, freeze them on a flat surface separately, or else they will clump together and you will have a big roll of dough again.

Uncooked gnocchi will freeze well on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle a little flour so they don't stick. Don't bunch them up. When frozen store in ziplok if u don't have a fancy shrink wrap thingy. Keeps a couple months I think.

Yes, freeze on a tray so they don't stick, then vacuum seal them. The Ziploc sous vide bags are a good alternative to buying a vacuum machine.

Not a problem. One of our visiting chefs (I work for W.S.) talked to a class about how making the gnocchi ahead and sticking them in the freezer is a great time saver. Same for ravioli.

Thanks to everyone who responded! Although, I didn't read the responses until after I rolled the dough up in a log, covered in saren wrap and then in a freezer bag. Since I didn't create the gnocchi ahead of time, can I thaw it out, and then create the gnocchi?

BTW - The butternut squash gnocchi that I did make was delicious, especially served in the brown butter & sage!
