Homemade Gnocchi

Hi friends! My husband and I just celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary - woohoo! We did a ton of fun things together to celebrate, one being making homemade gnocchi. We used Michael Chiarello's Potato Gnocchi recipe (click here for that).

We love to cook together, and had some time on our hands and figured - why not make gnocchi?! We both agreed that it was well worth the prep and the wait - they came out awesome! They could have been a touch lighter, but not bad for our first time.

I wish I documented the steps better, but I had to concentrate since it was our first time making it HA! Here's one prep photo I took - this was when you had to make a mound out of the riced potatoes, and dig a little well in the middle for the ingredients. After combining everything together, we cut the mount into 4 parts, rolled them out into a rope, and cut into 1/2 inch little pillows as seen above!

Heavenly! These photos are before they were cooked, of course. We made a delicious alfredo sauce to top it off with. It doesn't photograph well (the sauce) so the finished product just went straight to our mouths HAHA. Hope you guys enjoyed!
