      Healthy? Yes. Delicious? I'm a bit torn. I wasn't crazy about the texture of these and I had a hard time getting the dough to a proper consistency. I also had a lot of trouble with the gnocchi crumbling in the water. I did like the way they tasted (though they were a bit bland when made as stated) but I think next time I would definitely prefer to eat them in a lasagna or stuffed shell instead of by themselves because I think they lacked enough flavor and texture to really make them sufficient as a stand alone dish.

      Just what I was looking for. I made this up, then divided it into individual servings, topped each with either marinara or light lemon basil sauce and popped them in the freezer for lunches and quick after work dinners. They reheated beautifully in the microwave. Next time, I'll double the batch, for sure!!
