Anoher gnocchi fan.

I also like...

Sweet potato (& ricotta) gnocchi with butter sage sauce, and topped with crushed Amaretti cookies.

Another take is...

Pan-fried (lemon) ricotta gnocchi.

Souvlaki,

Do please save me that Gnocchi with Ragł !
I shall be on the next plane out of here !

I adore buffala di mozzarella and Pecorino Sardo ... Sounds delicious.

I always have spare Ragł Bolognese in the house ! I use it for my pizza, and my pastas all the time ... as well as my lasagne ...

It stores excellently too ...

herb and spiced flours: this truly makes a difference in taste and aromas ...

Seriously, if we get over to Greece in 2011 or 2012, we shall go out for Meze ! Our invitation.

Kindest.

Thanks again.
Margi.

I've only made gnocchi once, but it is definitely on my "to do" list again. It was so much fun to do (the DH and I did it together). I made ricotta gnocchi, but want to do spinach or swiss chard this summer, and maybe one with some of my homemade sausage...and sweet potato...and gosh, I don't even really like pasta, but I like making gnocchi. A friend of mine from Italy used to make spinach gnocchi. I was always so impressed. I have this amazing noodle cookbook (it was buried in my many boxes of cookbooks). It has a recipe for that Indian noodle snack made using chickpea flour, curry, and pressing the dough through a ricer or spaetzle maker into oil? Oh, I can see that as a snack food to munch on with a good movie. I can hardly wait to try that, as well as the gnocchi recipes and soba noodle recipe...has anyone made the Indian snack? Incentive for getting this move done!!!

@ JSadler

Good idea trying to make it. I made it once and to be honest the store bought are just a different product. They shouldn't both be called gnocchi. Store bought are like potato flavored dense pasta homemade is like fluffy light balls of potato goodness. They do not taste the same at all which surprised me.

I have heard and read obout making gnocchi with baked potatoes but i have never tried it. I have a friend that uses that method and she says that potatoes are more dry if you bake them so you do not need to add too much flour and oyu do not kneat the dough for too long so gnocchi are better.
I will try this method next time and let you know how it went.

Have a nice day :)

The first dish my brnd new DIL made for me was gnocci. Her family comes from Naples. And with five daughters none of them knew how to cook. The mother only would let her husband into her kitchen. But she did teach the girls how to make gnocci. They were very light and delicious.

Soulvaki,

I have wanted to mention, that many ravioli are filled with sweet verses savoury fillings ... Usually rasberry or cherry filling with mascarpone !

I thought to do a post on the cherry - mascarpone ones ... I once made these as a Christmas vacation treat ...

Kind regards.
Margi.

Thanks To All The Wonderful Posters On This Thread,

Though I am in an editorial deadline for 29th, and have been non stop around the clock, typing, re-editing, spell checking, proofing and rewording, I have still been making some notes on my D.C. threads and checking in without posting ...

I wish to thank all of you for such lovely posts, humorous anecdotes and ideas bountiful.

Grazie once again.
Margi.
