What the hell is gnocci?

We don't have that in SC

EDIT: Wikipedia says they are dumplings. We have those. Usually in chicken, rabbit or squirrel stew. Sometimes in blackberry or apple cobblers.

 My bad.

Yeah ya do, you just call them pot stickers.

I wouldn't compare gnocci and potstickers. In my mind potstickers are thinnish skins wrapped around a filling and cooked in the particular way that causes them to stick to the pan and then release. Wrinkledy little guys. Gnocci are simple dumplins with no filling. at least that's how i see it.

I agree. They're more like rivels.

one year for a halloween potluck I made pumpkin gnocci in a blood orange burre blanc and served it in a jack'o'lantern ala brains. It was fun and tasty. Wonder if I have a picture of that somewhere.

Now that's a brilliant idea.
