If you are wondering what in the world gnocchi is, well you wouldn't be alone: it is basically potato pasta, little dumplings made out of potato. Sounds strange but it tastes amazing!
Potato, pasta flour and eggs are combines and shaped into little dumplings and then they're boiled and served with your choice of sauce or side. You can find gnocchi in the chiller cabinet of your supermarket along with all the other fresh pastas.
