Homemade Gnocchi

Gnocchi reminds me a lot of the Ukrainian “Galushki”, which we made out of potatoes. Gnocchi’s texture is a bit chewy and quite different from the regular pasta. They work well with many sauces or additions to soups and they freeze well for use in the future.

Gnocchi had been on my list to make, for a very long time, but I was too afraid to try, as they seemed too complicated. After looking over a few recipes, I realized that making homemade gnocchi is quite simple. You can see a video of me making them on Instagram.
