Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Fresh Basil & Parmesan Cheese June 19, 2012

Jamie says: Want to know something funny? This is my second attempt at gnocchi. The first definitely wasn’t blog-worthy. It required chocolate after to satisfy me. But this simple recipe definitely made my taste buds sing for joy.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Fresh Basil & Parmesan Cheese

There’s something about that simple, freshly poured extra virgin olive oil that is just so delicious. Just think about that dipping oil at Macaroni Grill or Carrabba’s Italian Grill…

So simple, yet so delicious

Parmesan cheese… yum! It adds a little saltiness. And that fresh basil… no need to mask any of this fresh flavor.

Secret: these gnocchi have whole wheat flour and sweet potatoes in them
