See those little pasta looking things? Those are called gnocchi... or as I like to call them, incredibly delicious pieces of potato pasta heaven. Not kidding even a little bit. I am in love.

Last night, Steve took me out for my birthday dinner and I decided to try somethign new and had gnocchi with chicken, zucchini, onion and red peppers in alfredo sauce. From the first bite, I was hooked.

After a little research, I found out that these little suckers are pasta made from potatoes. I also found out that you can easily make them at home with stuff I currently own (yet another reason to be grateful for that fancy food processor wedding gift). If that wasn't awesome enough, they freeze well so I could do the hard part on the weekend, and still have fabulously fresh and yummy gnocchi 20 minutes after walking in the door.

If you get the opportunity to try them I really encourage you to do so. You will not be disappointed.
