15 Really Good Gnocchi Recipes

I love gnocchi! Check out some of these delicious recipes you can make at home. 

Have you ever tasted gnocchi? Well, they taste like tiny potato pillows (if pillows tasted good), and they are absolutely delicious! While gnocchi is sort of lumped into the pasta family, it is not pasta at all!

What is Gnocchi?

Gnocchi is a tiny potato dumpling that you often cook like pasta (hence the confusion), and you serve with pasta sauce, marinara sauce, or other delicious sauces. If you are a pasta lover, you will probably love gnocchi so give it a try!

If you want to make a really lovely at-home date night, then you and your partner should make one of these delicious gnocchi recipes together. Pair with a bottle of wine and a salad, and you have a little taste of Italy in your living room.
