Gnocchi-doke

This is one of my food resolutions for 2010 - homemade gnocchi. Using this as inspiration, I tweaked the recipe somewhat and made my own version.

I used carrots and garnet yams in the gnocchi, then tried to pan fry them to get a crisp outside. The problem with this is that the gnocchi started to fall apart, so some of it stuck to the pan and i had to scrape it off. I also added roasted broccoli (LOVE THIS STUFF) and topped it all with marinara sauce and grated parmesan cheese.

It turned out very good - surprisingly filling and a little sweet-salty. I have to work on my gnocchi-rolling technique because these were quite ugly. Next up, spinach-ricotta gnocchi in a prosciutto-cream sauce!
