Learning Kitchen: Gnocchi

Magneto and I have a pretty good setup for weekend food; he takes the big Saturday meal, and I take Sunday’s. This weekend, Magneto went out on a limb and made something he’d never made before: gnocchi.

After shaping and boiling the gnocchi, he sautéed it in butter with sweet peas, then garnished with fresh grated parmesan. His flavor instinct was, as always, on point.

Going forward, he’ll probably focus on making them smaller and more uniform in size, as well as moderating the amount of liquid from the ricotta so that he needs less flour and less time working the dough to create a more tender and pillowy gnocchi.

For just 289 calories, this meal was hearty and delicious!
