Gnocchi is a type of food loved by many and “feared” by most. Why’s that? Well, I guess most people have the impression that they’re complicated to make, or very time-consuming.

Let me tell you right from the start that this impression is wrong! Gnocchi are so fun to make if you make them from scratch! You just need to boil some potatoes, mash them and mix them with flour and the little bits of heaven are ready to be rolled out into the classic gnocchi shape. And the technique is very simple, trust me! The recipes below will show you exactly how you can do this, so get ready for some fun.

Another great thing about gnocchi is that they’re super versatile. You can make them with normal potatoes or sweet potatoes and you can serve them in countless different ways. For example, you can make a gnocchi soup, you can grill them or you can serve them with your favorite sauce.

The possibilities are endless and the end result is guaranteed to make you feel full and satisfied for a long time! 🙂
