When I visited my Italian family (the Rigassio's) in Italy they served the best gnocchi I've ever tasted. I asked them for the recipe and they sent it to me!
Fast forward many years when I found myself living in Hawaii where I discovered the magical purple sweet potatoes. They are rich in nutrients, taste amazing plain, and colorful AF. I decided to use my families recipe but substitute purple potatoes where it called for yellow potatoes. I can tell you that it works!
As a Chef/Manager at a retreat center in Hawaii called Kalanihonua I often have to develop recipes for 150 people (this recipe can be easily scaled up) and bring my Ohana (Hawaiian family) together, put on some Dean Martin, break out the red wine and make this delicate pasta. Here is a video of just such an occasion.
Gnocchi is a great food to get the whole family involved in making!
