    MarraMamba's Note:

    This has a wonderful burst of flavor with all the fresh herbs and the basil oil. The ricotta gnocchi recipe has been included. This is a Donna Hay recipe. The prep time is far shorter than it looks, don't let the list of ingredients scare you

      I had great difficulty in getting this recipe to work. The gnocchi dough was way too soft and would not hold its shape. As I am unsure whether the fault was with me, I am not rating the recipe.
