My aunt Elaine came to my house in Florida quite a few years back and taught me how to make homemade gnocchi and sauce. Although I still make homemade sauces and freeze them, I dont get much time to make the gnocchi homemade. : ( I do try to do so around Christmas time though. I am posting this recipe using store bought gnocchi and sauce. It's the quick and easy way to enjoy this meal. If you prefer you can use homemade sauce like i do.
This is a family favorite. My Aunt was an amazing cook and learned how to cook wonderful italian meals from her mother in law. I am so thankful to her for passing on some of her recipes to me.
