Let's just tag this post #storyofmylifeinItaly. It's Tuesday night and we've just finished dinner (it's 22:15 by the way). I'm simply amused by the fact that we went out for a run before dinner and then promptly sat down to platefuls of chestnut gnocchi smothered in butter and sage sauce with freshly grated Parmigiano. And this is precisely why my beloved wedding dress ordered 2.5 years ago no longer fits. What's really exciting is that this is the first time I've made these gnocchi in the correct way as the recipe calls for 'chestnut flour' which I could never seem to find in Canada. This specific flour gives the gnocchi a very slight sweetness which makes for the perfect combination with butter and sage from our winter garden. Here's the recipe from one of my old posts:
Chestnut Gnocchi with a Butter and Sage Sauce from Two Greedy Italians Eat Italy (Gnocchi di Castagne con Burron e Salvia)
Try it out and let me know how it goes, it's probably my new favourite dish (for this week at least)!
