Abruzzo Style Potato Gnocchi


Gnocchi with Mushrooms & Peas Alfredo Sauce


Top of the morning to you, dear food lovers!


Second post this week …. isn’t it exciting? I told you I will try harder this year.


Going back to the last year … or better yet, last night of 2013

…. I wanted to end the year with my favorite dish from my favorite Italian restaurant CAMPO MARINA


…. well, boo-hoo for me ….. they decided to close till February …… February!!!!!!!


All dressed up (sort of speak) & nowhere to go my hubby …. my bestie …. her hubby & myself decided to have dinner & drinks in one of “better” restaurants in our town called The Firehall Bistro.


BIG MISTAKE!!!! Well, it wouldn’t be a mistake if we just stuck with drinks & appies  ….


dinner at Firehall Bistro


Long story short …. we all knew that The Firehall Bistro makes great drinks …. awesome burgers & excellent pub style appies


however, their “fancy” dinner fare is  ….. well, ….. I keep trying & trying & they keep disappointing me kind of thing….


This was true even more then usual on the New Years Eve ….. & lets leave it at that …. lesson finally learned.


Anyway, I entered 2014 with bad dinner experience craving delicious Italian fare …. Gnocchi in Creamy Sauce.


…. and then my wonderful Hormone Boy decided to make GNOCCHI for his sad mama …. yes, my 16 year old can make ABRUZZO STYLE POTATO GNOCCHI like nobody’s business ….. must be the Italian blood & my hubby’s Nona’s recipe.

Of course, I had to supply the sauce ….. creamy ALFREDO SAUCE with MUSHROOMS & PEAS with just the perfect amount of white wine sauce.

Now, don’t tell anybody, but …… I decided to share with you our family recipe for ABRUZZO STYLE POTATO GNOCCHI just like Nona used to make ….

I love my GNOCCHI with creamy ALFREDO SAUCE with MUSHROOMS & PEAS …..

    I’ve never made Gnocchi before. But I think I may give it a try. Not a fan of mushrooms, so maybe I’ll just do a cheese sauce or something. I hope mine turn out as yummy as yours look!

  22. My child obsession was gnochi actually, I remember begging my mom to go to the local Italian market where they would sell them by the pound, I actually have a little tool to make gnochi she gave me, not really sure how it works but I might go figure it out with this recipe ;)

    Bibi, Italian food is one of the world best food, at least i find so. There are so many different dishes to taste that you need a long life to try all, it become hard some time to decide when you are in an Italian restaurant, I don’t know how people manage kitchen with so huge options to cook.

  26. Pauline C. says:

    Sucks you had a bad experience dinner experience during new year’s eve! Anyway, that Gnocchi sounds yummy! I looove Italian foods and those are my kind of food, that creamy sauce.. I’m going to bookmark this and try it sometime soon :-) Thanks for sharing your recipe! :-)

  27. My boyfriend tried to make gnocchi a couple of months ago and it was an absolute fail. I’ll share this recipe with him so he can try again. :) Looks delicious and I’m glad it cheered you up!
