In keeping with my list, I made gnocchi by hand last night! It may not be pasta exactly but it sure was tasty...
Gnocchi is one of my favorite Italian dishes...I'm a sucker for it if it's handmade. I used this recipe from Food Network and it made quite a lot for just 3 potatoes!
Gigantic ball of delicious potato dough! I didn't have an actual ricer or a scraper/slicer but the combo use of a cheese grater, heart-shaped cookie cutter and parring knife worked just fine!
We ended up doing a simple butter an sage sauce on top...then poured on the parmesan! Soooo good!
