Typically, gnocchi are rolled using a fork to make their signature marks. These marks serve a distinct purpose to soak up more sauce in each little bite. If you find the rolling tricky, you can omit that step and stick to the round shapes.

Either way, I’m confident you will love the results. See my post linked at the bottom for all the tips on how to do this! You will also get to see the hands of my lovely mamma, who is my inspiration for everything in the kitchen.

  1. My wife and I made your gnocchi recipe yesterday, along with your brown butter sage sauce. It was really good. The sauce was killer. This morning I ate the little bit we had left over for breakfast 🙂 Can’t wait to make it again. Thank you.
