Gnocchi is an Italian dish that I love to eat, whether I make it myself from scratch, buy it already made or eat at a restaurant. You can add so many sauces and the flavour of these sauces are absorbed into the pasta made of potato.
This event is going to be on 19th October 2019 from 12.00 noon to 10.00 pm at The Ascot Lot, 448-466 Mount Alexander Road, Ascot Vale.
The meaning of the word gnocchi in Italian is small lumps and although they are usually made with potatoes, I sometimes use semolina. The potatoes are mashed and combined with flour to create a dough that's then formed into small pieces for boiling. When they are cooked, they turn into light, fluffy small pieces.
You are able to buy them frozen, fresh or actually dried and the dried ones last for a long time in the packet. The sauces that they are served with, often have a tomato taste however I have used many other bases such as the following in my recipes for gnocchi:
