Has anyone made this yet? I just stirred up a batch, using 1 1/2 cups flour in the dough and kneading in another 1/2 cup, which is how I understood the recipe. It was so tender I couldn't have rolled it out into logs, plus it was still pretty sticky, so I kneaded in more flour, probably 2/3 cup, and I think it could have used more. I am making this for my first two March shows, and I'm a little nervous. The recipe is very simple but I'm worried about filling the time where I'm kneading and rolling dough.

I guess I'm just looking for reassurance, tips & feedback from anyone else who has already made the gnocchi!!

The recipe says it makes 4 servings...I'm thinking if you're feeding LUMBERJACKS! LOL I would think more like 5, even 6 dinner servings, and probably 8 to 10 party servings, if you had the garlic pull apart bread, a salad & dessert to go with it.

I just used a jarred marinara sauce to top it off and that kind of spoiled it. The gnocchi itself was good but you really need a WOW sauce to set it off, IMHO. With the plain ol' marinara sauce, it wasn't any more special than everyday spaghetti. I think I'll try it again with the sage butter and see if I feel happier. ;)

Oh, and for what it's worth, my 5 year old and I made the profitteroles yesterday and there are ZERO left. MMMMMMM--those definitely get four stars!!

Wendy--WOW, your 5 year old made the puffs?! That's an Advanced recipe. They are sooo yummy!! I had the Risotto at our cluster meeting tonight and I cannot believe how good it is! It didn't taste at all like I thought it would. I plan on promoting that recipe this season or the puffs. We also tried the Caprese mini-sandwiches and they were good also, altough the flat bread was kinda hard to bite through and keep the sandwich together.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Italian food and I am so excited about this new theme.

Happy Cooking!!!
