Reviews for Homemade Potato Gnocchi

I've never had gnocchi before but tried the recipe. Very good, but I didn't know if it was typical gnocchi. Went to an italian restaurant recently and order gnocchi which was the house special. It tasted exactly the same! Yummy.
We LOVED this! Great taste, and very soft noodles. Definitely a make again! It was a mess to make, but well worth it.
I must admit, this recipe does take a lot of effort and patience but is well worth it. I was prompted to try this recipe because I had never heard of gnocchi before (I am 13.) I would recommend a lot more salt than suggested here, or people can add salt to their taste when eating. When I cut the mixture, I just decided it was easier to roll the whole mixture out and press with a fork then cut into vertical strips. Next, separate the strips and cut horizontally. I found this to be much more easier and efficient, just be sure to flour your surface WELL. Overall, time consuming recipe but very good, unique and impressive.
I didn't even know what gnocchi was before seeing this recipe, I was surprisely pleased with how good it was. I liked that soft texture.
These had a fantastic texture; they were not soft or mushy at all. I baked some chicken with garlic, kosher salt, and lemon-pepper and made chicken gravy from the drippings to serve with the gnocci instead of pasta sauce. Delicious!
