When I asked my mom if we had a family recipe for Gnocchi, she told me "I think, But I never took it, because I don't care much for Gnocchi" Sounds crazy I know, But a little while later she called me with my Aunt Angela's Gnocchi recipe. My Aunt Angie is FBI, and one of the most amazing cooks In my family. I hope you enjoy my familys Gnocchi recipe :)

I served mine with alfredo sauce, because Thats what I like lol. Traditionally, they're served as Baked Gnocchi Caprese, which is smothered in sauce and topped with Mozzerella! Yummmm (:
