Gnocchi Dinner

Wednesday, February 9, 2011


I love watching food shows (is it just me?), especially Jamie's 30 minute meals. For ages now, I wanted to make gnocchi (I love all things potatos) but I was worried that the process will be really complicated. I couldn't be more wrong! Last night with Deb's step-by-step instructions I finally made gnocchi with veggies. I don't think our kitchen was that quiet in ages as Balazs and I didn't beep a word for the whole duration of dinner, just kept stuffing ourselves (giggle). Darlings, have you made gnocchi before? I would like to try different topping variations, what's your favorite? xoxo

P.S: Balazs is making this for lunch today.
P.P.S: Stay tuned for GIVEAWAY Wednesday...

gnocchi is a staple over here in italy! the old ladies bust 'em out like it's nothing! i love the very small kind that seem to melt in your mouth. i've never tried to make them, but now you've inspired me!

Styles 'n Cream said...

I've never tried to make them from scratch, I usually buy them from Trader Joe's and it takes just a few minutes to have them boiled. They are delicious.

Wendy said...

My favorite cooking show is Barefoot Contessa, everything she makes looks so fresh and elegant! I've never made this but it looks amazing as does that meatball sub over at Smitten Kitchen (such an awesome foodie blog).

The trick is to grate the potatoes first and then only incorporate some flour, salt and an egg.

Kristen said...

I love Gnocchi but I am always intimidated to make it myself. Thanks for the boost of confidence.

Brittany H. said...

Oh man, that looks so freakin' good. (That browned bit on either side, especially.) Can I come to your house for dinner? *wink

I'm also adventurous in the kitchen and love to watch cooking shows. My favorite is Nigella and Jamie Oliver. I'm going to make this. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I'll be back for that giveaway!

I also love all things potato. haven't had gnocchi in a while because of the flour (gluten allergy) but if they really are easy I could sustitute the flour I imagine.
