There’s a good reason gnocchi come in packages. It’s because they’re stupendously boring to make yourself. As I found out over the course of three hours yesterday.

In the end I gave up at the point where I had enough dumplings for our dinner, and didn’t bother making more to freeze. I’m willing to pay money to a supermarket or grocer to have them take that hellish dough-rolling slog right out of my life.
