Channel your inner Italian chef as you tackle this Gnocchi with Pork Ragu recipe. These little dumplings that are made from fresh ingredients will encourage you to make this dish more than this one time.
Gnocchi (little Italian dumplings traditionally made with potato, flour and egg) are a delicious alternative to pasta, with origins stemming from ancient Rome. It is traditionally created in Italian households from a unique mixture of flour, egg, and sometimes potato.
This particular recipe focuses on creating some very flavorful pork pieces that are covered in a rich savory sauce with a great serving of vegetables. Gnocchi, like most pasta, is a fairly neutral type of carbohydrate so it is paired well with the well-seasoned meat as one (the meat and the gnocchi) doesn’t overwhelm the other. Instead, the flavors harmonize together, similar to a neutral bowl of white rice drizzled with a rich and flavorful savory sauce.
Savor the authentically soft pillows with this decadent pork ragu sauce. This is the perfect dish for serving your family or friends a comforting dinner or a flavorful weekend lunch meal.
