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.
