Top Review by Satyne

This was delicious, the flavours were lovely. I think I may have put twice as much sausage, fennel and reserved water to make it go further. Believe all ingredients were followed. Threw a bit of chilli in because we had some that needed to be used. Gnocchi was the baby gnocchi which I prefer since it seems to go further. Thanks for a great dinner.
