Serve Up Italian: Homemade Gnocchi from the Blog Cupcakes and Cashmere

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.
