Last month, Prajakta asked for a picture of the gnocchi. Here’s tonight’s gnocchi, Prajakta!
Gnocchi never look like much, do they? You can’t tell by the photo that they taste like dreamy lil pasta pillows.
I only like to make gnocchi maybe once a year, because it takes hours and
I make it makes a huge mess. They do not freeze well. They do not reheat well. It’s all about the fresh. Alone, gnocchi have a delightful texture, but they’re quite bland. I like them with butter sauces. Tonight I tossed them into a very simple sauce of butter, tomatoes I gutted and crushed by hand, and fresh basil leaves. I added salt and some grated mozzarella. Om nom nom!
This is a dish that inspires The Mister to make grunt-y man noises, talkin all “Gurrrrl, Oh yeah, Baby, Mmm, Fat Boy Likey.” But it’s not for everyone, I guess; Moo still doesn’t like it.
Do you like gnocchi? Do you make gnocchi? What sauces do you like on it?
