The evolution of gnocchi is quite an interesting one. It is believed that gnocchi, which in Italian translates as "lumps," were the first type of pasta to be eaten by Italians. Theory has it that bits of dough made of flour and water were pinched off and shaped with the tines of a fork and then dropped into boiling water. These small, tasty dumplings cooked quickly and their texture allowed sauces to readily adhere. With the introduction of the potato from the New World, Italians exchanged wheat flour for potato flour which resulted in an even lighter, more delicate gnocchi. Alessi Potato and Spinach Gnocchi is the perfect mix of traditional gnocchi and spinach gnocchi. This colorful blend cooks in minutes and are delicious with tomato sauce or pesto.
