“My nanna was from Italy, I loved it when she made gnocchi. It is a very time consuming process, but well worth the effort! The recipe can be varied with the addition of other ingredients (spinach, pumpkin, mushroom, herbs...) just let your imagination run wild! Serve with any sauce that tickles your fancy & lots of parmesan!!!”
