I’ve never been tempted to buy premade gnocchi. It was like I knew they wouldn’t be any good, or that the cashier and my husband would judge me for not taking the time to make my own. They aren’t complicated to make (especially with ricotta, and I have a great recipe in my book), but they do take a while, especially when it’s been a long day and you just want to sit down and relax.

So, today, I decided it was okay to buy store-bought gnocchi. I’m sharing the good news with this quick recipe that might just convince you to come to the dark side.

Enjoy these quick gnocchi!
