Gnocchi? What Kind Of Food Is That?

potato gnocchi Gnocchi Italienne homemade pasta
Gnocchi is a traditional Italian food which was brought to Europe by the Roman Legions. Gnocchi (pronounced nocky) is considered pasta although it is debatable whether potato gnocchi fits this category.
Gnocchi can be made with a variety of starches mixed with water, salt and sometimes, egg. Gnocchi made with flour is known as gnocchi Parisienne, while semolina is used to make gnocchi Romaine and potato is used to make potato gnocchi, or gnocchi Italienne.
Potato gnocchi is a more recent innovation following the introduction of potatoes to Europe in the 16th century after the European discovery of the Americas.
Once the dough is made, it is rolled into a cylinder, cut into short pillow-shaped segments and marked with a fork to give the gnocchi a textured surface which allows the sauce to cling.
Gnocchi is usually served with a tomato or cream based sauce, or with pesto, or simply tossed in butter and topped with grated parmesan cheese.
