“The cottage cheese melts and the flavor is great in this Italian comfort meal. Gnocchi is the Italian name for a variety of thick, soft noodles or dumpling. They are often filled with potatoes. You can usually find them in the freezer section of your grocery store by the ravioli and other frozen pastas.”
