I have been wanting to make gnocchi for a while because they have a delicious texture. Well… I should have watched a video about it first, and read multiple recipes. I used too much flour, didn’t cook the potatoes long enough, not enough flavor in the actual dough, and the texture just came out wrong. I guess I just was getting tired of the whole process because it takes quite a while from start to finish (and I was making a key lime pie and vodka sauce at the same time).
I will attempt it again, but not for a while. I found this video (below) that would have been good to watch before attempting gnocchi. I asked my Mom about gnocchi, and she says Italians pronounce it N’YO-k, with no EE on the end. I told her I think she’s wrong (because she messes up pronunciation with a lot of words, but she insisted that’s how Italians say it).
