I wanted to really like this recipe, but I think I was doomed from the beginning. I am not a fan of parmesan cheese (so salty) and there is a large amount of that in this recipe. Also, I wasn't sure I was a fan of gnocchi either. Turned out great, I think it just doesn't suit my taste, that is why I rate it 4 stars; I think other people will enjoy it, but I didn't so much. I may try it again, but try to tame the parm in some way.

this is one of our favorite recipes. we try to make it weekly. it is healthy, but does not taste like it is. if we can get broccoli rabe or broccolini we will use that as a green substitute. we will blanch the broccoli rabe or broccolini before we put it in with the gnocchi.
