These gnocchi with creamy porcini and sundried tomato sauce make for a quick and flavorful dinner ready in 30 minutes!
I made this recipe with some of my homemade gnocchi I had stocked up in my freezer, so handy! Just boiled some water, meanwhile made my sauce with a little white wine, a bunch of dried porcini and sundried tomatoes, dinner was ready in no time, what a delicious and comforting meal!
There are very few brands that make good gnocchi, De Cecco and Rana are delicious and keep their texture while cooking, all the others get too soft for me.
