If you’re like me, you love simple, easy to make recipes. The less ingredients needed, the better; the less cleanup, the better. For this, look no further than gnocchi, an Italian pasta made of cooked mashed potatoes, flour, and eggs. Some recipes also include ricotta, but it’s not necessary. As painless as they are to make, gnocchi is even easier to use in pretty much any recipe. There are about a thousand different ways to not only make these squat little shells, but also to use them.
