This is my favorite way to eat gnocchi; swimming in a basil-infused broth with bits of spicy sausage, roasted red peppers and fresh baby spinach leaves.
I prefer eating my gnocchi in soup rather than on a plate smothered in sauce. Not because I don’t like them that way. Even when they’re light and airy like clouds they expand later so I feel as if I swallowed a rock. A large, heavy one.
The problem is I tend to eat them like they’re pasta. Which you should definitely not do. Even though they are a type of pasta…gnocchi are made of potato and flour making them much more filling.
Eating them in this creamy soup means I can enjoy a few and still save room for other ingredients. Because there’s more to life than gnocchi.
