Recipe from : Laura in The Kitchen

Gnocchi is considered to be one of the most ancient Italian dishes. This dish dates all the way back to the 1500’s and is associated with carnival. Gnocchi became a staple dish for Italians, especially those who could not afford meat. Many previous peasant dishes including gnocchi, are now a part of gourmet meals. Each region of Italy is associated with a different type of gnocchi, and each is uniquely delectable. These light, airy potato dumplings are hearty and delicious. Enjoy this great video of Laura Vitale teaching us how to make Baked Gnocchi Caprese!
