My sisters and I have loved gnocchi for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved its soft pillowy texture – even if I could never say it correctly.
Plus, it just cooks so darn quickly. My sister is the master at making homemade gnocchi, so I leave that job to her and use the store bought kind.
You can also boil the gnocchi first, then make the sauce as directed and stir in the gnocchi at the last step.
