so in honour of constantly being subjected to watching him make gnocchi i though i would see what all of the fuss was about. having never tried it - i can hear my mom saying right now oh yes you have! - okay not remembering ever trying it, i thought we would give it a go. i combined it with pesto and diced asparagus.
for me the gnocchi is merely a chorus member and doesn't quite get top billing. a whole bowl was too much - i think this is more of a side dish. it was good but i won't go out of my way to make it again. i will serve the rest tonight beside some baked chicken as i can't bring myself to throw out food, not matter how much it was not enjoyed.
unfortunately for fabio he was eliminated from top chef - maybe the judges felt the same. too one note. too much gnocchi. the name is top chef after all, not top gnocchi.
