As for most home-made dishes, this Thermomix Gnocchi Recipe will add that extra-something to your meal!
Gnocchi are a well-known traditional Italian food, and are common all over the world although cooked in several different versions. Like most Italian dishes, you'll find considerable variation in recipes and names from region to region: in Tuscany there are malfatti (literally "poorly made") a sort of flour, ricotta, and spinach gnocchi while Puglia prefers the cavatielli which are flour-based, and so on.
The ones we all know about are potato gnocchi.
Of course, making home-made gnocchi from scratch requires a bit of time, but that's where your Thermie comes in handy, to save you heaps!
At my place, gnocchi are among everyone's favourite, and that makes me happy because is a reasonably light recipe: flour, water and potatoes. Plenty of fiber, minerals and vitamines!
You may dress gnocchi with simple tomato sauce or pesto. Choose your favourite dressing among all of the Thermomix Recipes ;-)
