The first time I ever had real gnocchi was during my day trip with Mud Baron in LA. The little potato dumplings were smothered in a white cream sauce. I crave this meal year-round but mostly when I smell basil. Fresh homegrown basil is the best in this recipe. In this post, I share my Tomato Basil Gnocchi with Fresh Mozzarella Recipe.
Cheese Tomato-Basil Gnocchi With Fresh Mozzarella
In this recipe, it is about using what you have on hand. I do a lot of ‘on hand’ cooking using what I have growing in my home greenhouse or containers. If you are not a huge fan of Prosciutto smokie flavor you can omit or use half of the recommended ingredient. I hope you like this recipe enough to try your hand at making your own Gnocchi and maybe even growing your own herbs and tomatoes for this dish.
Inspired by a recipe on the Delallo Brand Italian Gourmet products.

What is Gnocchi
Gnocchi – say that a few times! This is small dumplings made from potato, semolina, or flour, usually served with a sauce for Italian meals. I hope to learn how to make my own from scratch just for fun.
