About Gnocchi

Gnocchi are famous Italian dumplings that have become a delicacy throughout the world. They are most commonly made from potatoes and coated in a regional sauce. Like most Italian dishes we know today, the potato gnocchi came into being after potatoes were brought back from the Americas. But, various types of gnocchi were made throughout Italy prior to the 1600s.

The "base" of gnocchi during that time consisted of flour, breadcrumbs, eggs, semolina, or a combination of those and other ingredients. Dumplings similar to gnocchi are found in other countries, but the Italian version is arguably the mot famous. Gnocchi (which derives its name from the Italian words for "knot" or "knuckle") are often served as a first course and sometimes as a side dish. As with other Italian recipes, there is no singular gnocchi recipe. Italian cooks are largely influenced by regional foods, which means that if you travel the peninsula, you will find a great diversity in gnocchi and its sauces.

Okay so where do you buy gnoochi? I have looked at all of my local stores and have had no luck finding this. My daughter is just beside herself because this is her mostf avorite dish ever. I will climb mountains to find this stuff. It will save us a fortune in Olive Garden nights out. Which is the only place that serves this soup. lol

Hi Tammy, I know my local Kroger sells gnocchi, and Kroger has many different stores in its chain. I also love to order gnocchi soup at Olive Garden! That and a salad and breadsticks....well, now I have to head to Kroger and get some gnocchi. This soup looks amazing! Good luck finding it. There are always online sites that sell food items.

I made this soup before on the stove and it was great! Can't wait to make it in the slow cooker, so it's ready when I get home from work.

One of favorite reasons to go to Olive Garden! Thanks! I saved recipe to my recipe box. The recipe, itself, didn't come up, just the photo & intro. What do I do?
