My gnocchi recipes
Gnocchi have to be one of my favorite Italian foods. They are easy to make and so good to eat. They make such a great replacement for pasta when you have have friends or family over. Try a recipe or two below and let me know what you think. Start with the basic potato gnocchi recipe

If you love cheese as much as I do and you are crazy about gnocchi you can’t go wrong with this combination.

This is such a simple sauce, but it’s so tasty with gnocchi.
This is a real classic. They take a little time but they are easy to make and more than worth the effort. In Verona every year we have a Gnocchi festival called, “Venerdì Gnocolar.”
Gnocchi are one of my favorite dishes ever. I like them in any combination, I love potato gnocchi as you might already know, but I also love gnocchi made with ingredients other than potatoes. I often make squash, ricotta and spinach or ricotta gnocchi. Ricotta gnocchi are among my favorites as they’re even faster to [...]
This is my grandma’s recipes. When my sister and I were little we used to help her cutting the semolina mixture into disks. We were eating half of it raw while we were cutting it.
Squash is the vegetable that I cook the most during the fall and winter season. Thanks to its sweet, rich and nutty flavor squashes are amongst the most versatile of vegetables and ideal in many preparations.
