Gnocchi recipes - 32 recipes

Gnocchi, contrary to popular belief, are not actually pasta! Gnocchi are basically mashed potatoes mixed with flour and then rolled and cut into fluffy little potato pillows, and then boiled. A staple of Italian cuisine, gnocchi are served and eaten just like pasta; you can simply butter them and add freshly grated Parmesan, or bathe them in a delicious, rich pasta sauce. From my own gnocchi making attempts, the best advice I can give you is to not overcook them; the moment they start floating to the top of a pot of boiling water is the moment that they need to come out, and not one second later! Homemade gnocchi are a great way to get initiated into making fresh pasta at home, as they're relatively easier to make and are less time consuming than other types of pasta.
