Home Made Cavatelli/Gnocchi

Submitted by: ACARROZZA

Introduction

Some say it is cavatelli if it is made with ricotta and gnocchi if made with potato.
This recipe is for approximately 2 people, double for more and/or leftovers.
Not the healthiest, but definitely comfort food, which I think is mentally healthy!

  • I remember my mother making these when I was a kid. I found another recipe that uses whole wheat flour, which I prefer, but these are good. Note the discrepancy in the serving size, though: I think the calorie count is for a two-cup serving. - 5/21/13
