For a few years the hubby has been asking for Gnocchi yea sure sometime I will make them. Finely I had to let it be known I was clueless as to what a Gnocchi even was let alone make. I don't feel so bad my parents also didn't know what a Gnocchi was. At my local Sam's Club a few weeks ago I saw a box of Gnocchi's so I picked it up. What is a Gnocchi? A Gnocchi is a little potato dumpling wrapped in a noodle. I believe they are on the menu at Olive Garden but I have not tried them before. This is a first I must say I was very impressed. Teresa at ablogaboutfood2.blogspot.com had a vegetarian recipe on her blog a few weeks ago with spinach and pine nuts that's next to try. The Gnocchi come in a vacuumed packed package with three in a box, the shelve life is a year. Next time I am going to try making them by scratch.
