I ate these with a jarred tomato-vodka sauce, and I really enjoyed them. They are a little bit fussy to make, but I think they were worth the trouble. Makre sure you let the dumplings sit on the paper towels for a while, in order to give them time to firm up (unless you want them a little mushy...I definitely don't). They looked really appetizing on top of the red sauce! Thanks for posting.
