Hubby and I love our Italian food! The sauce in this gnocchi recipe is very tasty! If I don't have fresh oregano or sage, I use dried herbs. You can also use button or oyster mushrooms instead of the swiss brown. A very nice meal with crusty bread!

  1. Heat oil in large frying pan.
  2. Cook onion, garlic and mushrooms until just tender.

Hmmm, I don't know, this recipe didn't work for us. I used a mix of mushrooms (that could be the problem), I used an Italian wine, I used light sour cream. We just didn't like it, and didn't finish our meals. It just was very strong of wine and a bit tangy. I also recall not being able to get sour cream in Italy? I think it was my ingredients, definitely, but it wasn't obvious enough for me to try again. Sorry, and thx for sharing.

Most excellent!! The ingredients seem so simple, but they come together in an incredibly rich, complex, flavorful sauce. Quickly too, I might add. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe!

My DH hates mushrooms, and devoured two bowls of this! I did add a bit more red wine and a lot more sour cream (we like things creamy!). Lovely flavours.
