Hey there, gnocchi!
I nabbed this pack of Gia Russa whole wheat gnocchi made with sweet potato at the grocery store on Sunday and was so excited to try it that I cut open the pack on Sunday night to try a raw one.
Raw gnocchi is freakin’ nasty!
Fortunately cooked gnocchi is delicious… though this particular pack had kind of a weird aftertaste.
I cooked the whole wheat gnocchi while roasting cauliflower and broccoli to served with the dumplings.
Once everything was ready, I topped it all off with marinara sauce and a generous sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
I loved the doughy texture of the gnocchi but am not sure I’d buy this brand again because of the odd aftertaste.
Before signing off for the night, can I get three cheers for only two days remaining in the work week? I am so looking forward to Easter and seeing my family and Ryan’s family. I feel like it has been forever since we’ve seen everyone!
We’re spending Easter at Ryan’s mom’s house and are planning on helping his mom prepare a delicious brunch. In case you are looking for a fun Easter dish to make this weekend, I highly recommend baking a bunny cake!
Not only are they delicious, but they’re festive and adorable!
Here are two options that my mom, sister and I made last year…
And now I want cake. Hmph.
Only a couple more days until I welcome sweets back into my life! This whole yogurt for dessert thing is getting o-l-d.
