Are you using the dried gnocchi? They make a fresh frozen version that is'nt too bad.

they are in the pasta section of the store, they aren't hard per say like pasta is- they cook up up really quick. I don't see the fresh to often. I get these to have on hand never know when im going to use them. i sometimes toss them in beef stew. I forgot I use the mini gnocchis for everything.

I love the gnocchi you are talking about. They are vacuum packed I believe.

Thanks for the recipe too! It looks great.

I like to brown these gnocchi's in butter then salt, pepper, toss in some shaved Parmesan cheese and call it lunch! I know...not a very balanced lunch...
