  1. Elaine,
    My favorite kind of pasta hands down. I remember watching my Nonna make these when I was a kid. I'm going to make them with Sam.

  8. I haven't made gnocchi yet this season, but you have totally inspired me with your wonderful pictures. And your sauce looks delicious. Thank you so much, Elaine. This was a lot of work.

  9. i remember going to my nonna's as a kid to help turn the pasta maker! and watching her make homemade pasta, especially gnocchi! I love it! I haven't ever made it myself, but this makes it look easy! Thanks for sharing!

  10. hey..

    i am so happy to see someone else doing a couple of things that i do with my gnocchi as well.... first being baking and second being no gnotches (yes... spelled correctly... pointless extra work that goes only gnocchi.. ha)
    any ho.. looks wonderful and we are a once a month gnocchi household!

    take care and keep doing what you do!

  11. I've learnt something new here - thanks. I think the idea of baking the potatoes would give them more flavour. I'm going to try your method, but I don't have a ricer or scraper - yet!

  12. These look so delicious! I just felt like I was in your kitchen, making gnocchi and drinking wine.

  13. Well, you make it sound less scary, that's for sure. Fun even.

    And your end result looks truly beautiful.

  14. Hmmm, my favorite. I'll eat Gnocchi when it's 97 degrees and so humid I'm dripping with sweat.

    Love, love, love it.

  15. great pics. ur post reminded me so much of a wonderful trip i took to italy 10 yrs ago. i ate at this fantastic resto in florence where the rissoto was amazing. but the gnocchi at a resto in Rome beat everything else! congrats on making it!

  16. Awesome, You Rock! I lived with an Italian last year would make scratch gnocchi. I have often lamented losing access to her encyclopedia of italian food - but no more: for I've found you!

    Great work, all of it.

  17. me loves gnocchi.

    just a tip, if you don't own a ricer, shredding the potato on a box grater works perfectly. that's how we make it and i can vouch for the fact that it works.

    you're so right about the ridges... not totally necessary!

    Thanks for sharing, Chef Chuck

  19. I sooo need to try this. Gnocci is one of my fave dishes so to make it at home would be so much better than some of the lackluster versions around here in Orlando.

    Now, excuse me a moment while I go order myself a potato ricer ;) Thanks for the recipe and video!
