Dinner Recipes


sure to impress - but oh-so-easy I have heard many pronunciations for the word Gnocchi (I pronounce it: no-ki). People get intimidated just because of the spelling. But I can assure you that my potato-based recipe for gnocchi is quite tasty, extremely easy, and a great alternative to spaghetti pasta or angel hair pasta.
