I get a big kick out of clicking on the pronunciation button on dictionary sites to hear how the word gnocchi gets pronounced. Unfortunately, they don’t often get it right. (It’s pronounced Knee-OH-Key).
These delicate little barrels of potato pasta are absolutely divine. The homemade version of gnocchi from my Momma’s recipe below take a bit more time but will melt in your mouth, served with butter or a light marinara sauce. The store bought variety is best for Asparagus Gnocchi, as they are not so delicate and will hold up during the cooking process. Either way, Buon Appetito!
