Italy - Tania Yordan - Gnocchi Ripieni

In Umbria, gnocchi is usually prepared in summer, when you can pick whole potatoes from the garden. This time of year makes it easier to peel them and gives them the right consistency to make a proper dough. Remember, you can still prepare the meal outside the summer season. The truffle used to fill the gnocchi is called "scorzone." It is a typical mushroom available in the summer and found on the Apennines' mountains. Don't worry, we can help you find the best equivalent variety in your hometown, and help you bring the taste of Italy to life. As you cook the meal, you will smell and taste the freshness of nature and the rustic flavors brought to life by the potatoes. The fresh ricotta underlines this dish's unforgettable taste, and is sure to make you think of the Green region in Italy.
