      When firm, remove from refrigerator and cut gnocchi into 1 1/2 inch squares or circles. Place them overlapping, into an ungreased baking dish. Dot tops with 1/4 cup margarine and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until brown. If needed you can brown a little more under the broiler.

      I made this and it was OK. But when made it again, using 3 eggs (yolks only) and butter instead of margarine, it was both silkier and tastier. Just like what I remember enjoying in Rome. So this basic recipe works well, but to improve the outcome I recommend changing it slightly to the way I made it.

      Very good, I have made a similar recipe to this before, the only change I mad to this recipe, was I used butter in place of margarine, added in a pinch of garlic powder and also increased the black pepper to 1 teaspoon. Thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
