Last Friday my dinner plan was Roasted Sage Chicken, Steamed Cauliflower and Squash Gnocchi Dumplings. Sounds delicious, eh? I was looking forward to it; it's always fun to try something new for dinner. We tend to eat the same thing over and over, and though it's simple, it's boring. If you've never had gnocchi it's a little, lump-like pasta or dumpling. I've seen it made on a cooking show and I've had it at an Italian restaurant before. However what I made was nothing like what I thought it should taste like. In fact it was so gross that I gave up before I finished boiling them all and threw the rest of the batter out. I felt so bad because I hate wasting food like that but I knew that if I didn't even like it, there was no way anyone else in the house would eat it. I should have gone with the Ricotta Cheesecake!
Fortunately I still had ricotta cheese left and so I stuck with using it for something I knew would be good: Pasta Sauce (thanks Amy!) It turned out great and we ate it for dinner twice this week, for lunch yesterday and I put the last of it on our pizza for dinner today! I wasn't kidding when I said we had a lot of ricotta!
