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.
Check out the other gnocchi dishes around the blogosphere by clicking over to the French Fridays with Dorie site and if you still haven’t bought a copy of this gorgeous book, what are you waiting for?! It’s STILL on sale from Amazon!
