Meet meat and potatoes in Italian style.
The ancient potato dumpling recipe known as gnocchi serves as a pasta replacement. And it’s easy and inexpensive to make at home.
This specific recipe calls for grilled pork marinated in garlic salt and extra virgin olive oil, and a tomato-based pasta sauce — often the way it is served in Italian restaurants — but it works well with other Italian ingredients and sauce of your choosing (a chicken Alfredo version is good).
It is also used in soups.
Picking the right potato is important as each variety cooks differently. Most online recipes recommend using russet potatoes, known for its high starch levels and easy mashing.
