My love for Italian food? Let’s just say, it’s everlasting. Fresh ingredients, savory sauces, seafood – I’m sold. This week, we’re taking our tastebuds through Northern Italy to Tuscany. On the menu: homemade gnocchi with pesto sauce.

Emily Schuman, author of the blog Cupcakes and Cashmere, gushes, “Last week I made it from scratch and was delighted by the results. I love the versatility of gnocchi – that it can work with any sauce (I made a quick pesto) that you have on hand and is far superior to the packaged variety available in stores.”

How to Make Gnocchi

Potatoes, flour, an egg, and a ricer, and dinner is served.

Topped with lightly fried thyme, rosemary, and sage, then served with a squeeze of lemon, this juicy dish is comfort food at its finest.  So call over friends, pull out a deep cast iron skillet, and treat yourself.

Best thing about this weekend? No work tomorrow. Second best? These flavor-bursting, savory-meets-sweet recipes from Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere. If this dish, and the fact that’s it’s Labor Day, isn’t excuse enough to pull out the grill one last time – we don’t know what is.
