I am a proud Italian so when it comes to quick and most important delicious dinners I tend to favor my Italian roots. Gnocchi are soft dumplings that can be made from a variety of ingredients such as flour, spinach, ricotta, and probably most common potato. This meatless masterpiece takes ~ 20 minutes to prepare, quick clean up, kid friendly, and most important taste wonderful.
