What is  Gnocchi?

You most probably know,  however just to be sure….

Gnocchi are various thick, small, and soft dough dumplings that may be made from semolina, ordinary wheat flour, egg, cheese, potato, breadcrumbs, cornmeal, or similar ingredients, with or without flavourings of herbs, vegetables, cocoa, or prunes.

Gnocchi hails from Italy, as do lots off lovely things

Should you boil gnocchi before frying?

Lots of people ask this question and the simple answer is no. 
 
There really is no need – you can simply just cut the bags of chilled gnocchi and pop in straight into the pan – perfect!
