Let's Talk Gnocchi

>> Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Ahh gnocchi, I don't know why my mother and father (who are both Italian) deprived me of this in my youth, but let me tell you, since I have tasted this delectable treat, my life has been better.
Gnocchi is basically the Italian name for a variety of thick, soft noodle, pasta, dumpling, whatever you want to call it. It comes from the word 'gnocco' which means "lump", nocchio, a knot in the wood, thus gnocchi.
You can toss it in ANYTHING, I mean literally, pestos, tomato sauce, cream sauce, anything that would be good with pasta will be good with gnocchi, possible better.
So there you have it, next time you go to an Italian restaurant or anywhere you see it on the menu, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
