French Fridays with Dorie – Gnocchi à la Parisienne

With this week’s FFwD, I’m reminded of a creamy gnocchi dish I had one summer evening off the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. Now, obviously there’s nothing ‘Parisian’ about the Charm City… but, that gnocchi was incredible. And so is this one.

I was afraid that this would be the first time I missed a recipe, but it literally took an hour to put together. Nothing like waiting ’til the last minute, right? Fortunately I read the P&Q beforehand and using Karen’s super-smart piping bag technique (of squeezing out the dough and cutting off at 1/2″), I made the cutest little pasta dumplings. I’m really excited to make this again… either as a grown-up mac & cheese for C or to remind me of that ‘charming’ night in Baltimore. 🙂

I didn’t make mine yet, I will either tonight or tomorrow for lunch. I am used to making potato gnocchi. What kind of cheese did you use? Looks like cheddar. That would definitely be like “grown up mac and cheese.” One of my favorites…I can’t wait to try it. Yours looks really good…Yum…

Looks great! I wish I had known about the piping bag technique when I made mine. They certainly would have looked better.

Looks terrific!! I agree with the others…the piping bag was a brilliant idea (one I unfortunately didn’t have). Perhaps I’ll make these again using that method and a nice marinara sauce.

I LOVE how yours turned out, Jessica! They are so very pretty and you don’t have all the cream – probably much less fattening and less carbs. I want to try making it again and see if I can get it to come out like yours.

So funny that you mention Baltimore – I’ve only been once, but I really loved that city. The gnocchi look terrific! I’ve never made gnocchi but I bet Dorie’s recipe would be a good place to start.

Jessica, I love the way your gnocchi turned out. And yes, it does look as though you’ve made grown-up Mac’n’Cheese — always a good thing.

Your gnocchi are just perfect! I love how cheesy they look. This was such a fun recipe to put together, I also used the squeeze and cut method and it worked so well, what a great suggestion!

Jessica, your gnocchi is beautiful. And it only took you an hour? I am the biggest slow-poke on the planet! It took me two hours! LOL.

Gorgeous gnocchi! I dragged my feet on this recipe, too, but when I finally decided to go with it, it took very little time to make. Karen’s suggestions on piping the dough out were invaluable!
