I know, breakfast pasta? But it's seriously delicious! This would be great with sweet potatoes as well. This syrup is quick and easy and great over pancakes and french toast and waffles as well. It's my go-to syrup now that I can't have high fructose corn syrup.

Gnocchi for dinner, yes. But for breakfast? Not something we'd thought of... but after tasting this gnocchi recipe we can't get them out of our mind! These warm, soft, little cinnamon balls will just melt in your mouth. The sweet brown sugar glaze drizzled on top is perfect. These disappeared very quickly in the Test Kitchen.
