Cinnamon gnocchi – Gnocchi alla cannella
This is a classic way to serve gnocchi in Verona. My grandmother always ate gnocchi like this. Traditionally these gnocchi were served with butter, cinnamon and sugar, this is a heritage from the Austrian Empire. I’ll leave that up to you and your sweet tooth, personally I skip the sugar.
