Homemade Gnocchi 🇮🇹

This week we’ll dive into Gnocchi (properly pronounced as “nyawk-kee”). These versatile Italian dumplings are beautiful baked, fried or boiled. Like many Italian dishes, gnocchi have considerable variation in recipes and names across different regions. Common accompaniments of gnocchi include melted butter with sage, pesto, as well as various sauces.

The dough for gnocchi is most often rolled out before it is cut into small pieces about the size of a wine cork. The little dumplings are then pressed with a fork or a cheese grater to make ridges that can hold sauce. Let’s get to it and cook up a delicious gnocchi of your own.
