  • The original Italian recipes is called Gnocchetti Burro e Salvia (Potato Dumplings with Butter and Sage), which means that there is is no EVOO, but only melted butter, however, I substitute most of the butter with EVOO, as it is much more healthful.
  • Simple, easy to prepare and super good. In fact it was so good that Brigit and I ended up eating it all in a single meal.
  • Though the whole wheat gnocchetti appeared somewhat dissolved, that is, not as compact as those made with white flour, the texture was more than fine.
  • Pair with Pignoletto Frizzante dei Colli Bolognesi, a frizzy fresh white wine from the Bologna hills, frothy red Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro, or Chianti DOP.
