Gnocchi are a type of Italian pasta with a soft texture. They’re usually made with potato – or semolina – as a main ingredient, and sometimes have egg and cheese in the mix. In Italy they’re usually served as an entree, but you can also enjoy them as a main course. We’ve tried them in this simple dish, with pesto sauce, and a few veggies, and we’re already big fans of them.
