Anyone ever make Gnocchi before?

I made the copy cat version of Olive Gardens soup, but I wasn't crazy about the gnocchi I used. The rest was spot on.

xtra bread slices

Good morning,

My husband and I like to get a loaf of French or Italian bread when doing errands at Walmart. But it does not stay fresh long, especially in the warm heat we are still having. I know I can put it in the freezer and do , but wonder what all of you do? Its hot to bake later in the day and wonder if I made a bread pudding, early morning, if it would be very good for after supper dessert. I haven't made many bread puddings. or other ideas ?
We also love to slice a wide wedge, toast in the the morning. then rub it with a clove of garlic all over, sprinkle with olive oil and a little chopped tomato with our coffee in the morning. YUM. We lived in Europe years ago and that's what they do there.
but looking for other ideas for the bread.

Meatball recipe

Many years ago, my mom had a meatball recipe that called for soaking slices of bread in milk before you added the mixture to the ground beef along with the rest of the ingredients. She remembers that you mixed this all together, formed the meatballs, put them in a layer and then she thinks you mixed cream of mushroom soup with possibly milk and onion and poured it over the top and then baked it. You did not precook the meatballs. Does anyone have this recipe?

I am looking for a recipe from the Southbeach diet for Spaghetti using turkey. I think they had one at one time that was a really good recipe. If, anyone has it. I would appreciate a copy I could print. Thanks

Can someone help me find an old recipe??

I am looking for a recipe from the 1970's called Hawaiian Chicken. It was a casserole and all I can do is list some of the ingredients and hope that someone has the recipe. It was really very good. And I have not been able to find the recipe although I have searched for years for the exact recipe. It's that good. Anyway here is a list of the ingredients that I know was in the recipe: chicken, Hi Ho or Ritz crackers, Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup or Cream of Mushroom Soup. It also called for a bag of frozen "Ranch Vegetables." And I don't think they even make the vegetables by that name now as I can't find them. It also called for chunk or crushed pineapple. That's all I know but I think maybe also melted butter. But I have tried to duplicate the recipe over the years and while my recipe is okay, it is still not what I'm looking for. Can anyone help me find this recipe??? I know there are hundred's of Hawaiian Chicken Recipes but this particular one from the 70's just stands out above all the rest. Thanks so much for any help.
