Made these exactly as written, and served in a sauce of browned butter, maple syrup and cinnamon. They were very pretty, though the gnocchi itself turned out gummy and dense, and seemed to be lacking something, not sure what. Perhaps a touch of honey, or another sweetener. To be fair, the sweet potatoes here are not as flavorful as they are in the US, so that might have had something to do with it.

Would be awesome to have the salt in the ingredient list if you are supposed to mix it in. Couldn't someone proofread this before posting? Salt is a pretty important ingredient and we shouldn't just guess....
