Filled Gnocchi?

Earlier this week I ordered "pumpkin gnocchi" at Apollo Grill in Easthampton, MA. When it arrived, the gnocchi were VERY large. Little 2" x 1" x 3/4" pillows. When I cut one, it was orange inside. Having assumed the pumpkin would be in the dough, my first thought was "yuck! stuffed w/ cheese". But, no, the stuffing WAS the pumpkin. And although, not what I expected, it was delicious. (BTW, served w/ shredded duck,leeks,oyster mushrooms...for $7)

Anyhow, what's the deal w/ filled gnocchi? I have never seen it before. I can't even figure out exactly how they did it.
