Avoid the step of cooking/baking potatoes to make gnocchi. Great recipe for weekdays when you crave gnocchi.

I have to admit, I did not have high expectations of this dish. Reluctantly I went out and bought potato flakes since I never have them in the house. The dough came together very fast and it was easy making the gnocchi shape. They cooked very fast and once cooked, had a very nice consistency, allthough the flavor was a tad bland. I topped them with a sage - brown butter sauce; well, what a lovely surprize, these gnocchi where delicious! If I had gotten them in a Restaurant, I would have never known the difference! Thank you for posting!Made and reviewed for PAC Spring 2013.
