Gnocchi with Salami in Tomato Sauce

Eeeeeeerrr… No story behind this recipe. This is the first time I made this, but it was quite nice though.

Oh, I want to tell you something. I finally decided to join the cupcake contest! Thinking about some ideas now. Please wish me luck, and I’ll post the link to vote my cupcakes on the 1st of march. If you have facebook, you should cheer for me. Pretty pleaseeeee with cherry on top? ๐Ÿ˜‰ If they still use the same method for voting as last year though.

I guess it’ll be short post today then, since I have no story to tell ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. as an Italian, it looks ok and I would give it a try.

    But don’t forget that gnocchi are salty, and cheddar is a very sweet cheese on its own right plus the fact that in both the uk and us it’s terribly artificial and often tastes like plastic unless you buy it from a trusted retailer that has it made traditionally.

    Then speaking of the paprika it works ok with cheddar, but I believe it gets a way too loaded especially with gnocchi that already have potatoes in them, if you wanna try some salty+sweet with an intense taste I’d suggest you to look for some recipes that were born during the Rinascimento, especially those that relate to the high courts of Tuscany and the Vatican.

    I tried to make this comment as constructive as I could, on behalf of Italian traditions and the fact that living in the uk and having eaten “italian” food cooked by americans an awful lot, I know many many things have been ruined by the “anglo saxon” countries… once again, I’m trying to make this constructive, I just would like one of the few things italy is left to be proud of is at least done and tought the good old traditional way.

    In fact if you need any help finding truly Italian recipes, feel free to get in touch with me.

      Hi, thank you for your kind comment ๐Ÿ™‚
      I know that gnocchi are salty and made from potato, thats why I barely put salt in it, got salt from salami too. And in my recipe I never put the exact amount of salt and pepper, because everyone has their own taste.
      Hmm, I don’t think I mentioned cheddar anywhere, its ricotta ๐Ÿ˜€
      In my family I always try to make simple food, I even modified Indonesian food and I’m Indonesian :p
      But, thanks again for your opinion ๐Ÿ™‚
