Gnocchi is one of those meals that I think most people reserve for ordering in a restaurant. This is great news for restaurants all over the world because they can charge $15 for what is probably 50 cents worth of ingredients. Restaurants can get away with charging this much because people are intimidated by the little potato dumplings. There is no need to be intimidated!
The thing that takes the longest when it comes to gnocchi is cooking the potatoes, but guess what? That’s done. So a meal that might normally be made for a Sunday dinner can be made on a Wednesday. Besides a basic gnocchi recipe, I’ve included two of my favorite sauces.
