  1. I love this dish. What a lovely combination of flavours to make the gnocci sing. It is refreshing to see others use store bought fresh products as we do not always have the time to make it all from scratch. A perfectly decadent bowl of pleasure Dani.

  2. Haha, I love your opening paragraph! How can you go wrong when you are enjoying such great food?

  3. Yum! Such good and simple flavours. Exactly what Italian cooking is all about.

  4. One of my favourite dishes. I always order gnocchi when I'm out - but I need to make it more myself at home too! Thanks for the recipe xx

  5. Love gnocchi! One of my fav dishes, I have the fondest memories having gnocchi on Sundays at my girlfriends home. Her dad mad it every Sunday when we were kids & it was heavenly. This sauce though, mouth watering...yum!

  6. Sounds delicious, an absolute 'treat yourself' kind of meal :)
