Gnocchi di patate are fluffy italian style pasta, made of potatoes and flour.
Originally coming from the north region of Italy, it's today well known all over the country. Each region has its own version of the dish, it can be served simply with melted butter and parmesan cheese or in a more elaborated sauce such as tomato basil or a creamy pesto.
It's better to steam them rather than boiling them, and the most important is to keep the pasta very dry before cooking it. Gnocchi di patate can be served as a main course or as a side dish.
