If it’s Thursday you can be sure that in a lot of Italian homes gnocchi will be on the menu. Why? Because it’s a long term tradition, they are cheap and very filling, ideal before lean Friday, the day of the week when we usually eat fish.

I used a little wood gnocchi board to shape them but keep in mind that you can use instead a fork or the back of your cheese grater to obtain a very similar result.
