Bento (57) - Notes on Gnocchi

I had never made gnocchi before. Quite yummy really. (For those who don't know, gnocchi is sort of like pasta - only made out of potatoes - and it looks like giant albino rolly-poly/potato/pill bugs). I must admit it was better warm - it turned a little chewy in the bentos - but still made for an excellent lunch!

The red stuff is store bought marinara sauce, the green is peas, and the white rolly-poly's are the gnocchi. To the right, I have imitation crabmeat/pepperjack cheese salad, strawberries, and kiwi. YUM!

Goose was thrilled with the green giraffe food pick (and it was long enough he could use it as a fork and I don't have to worry about him choking on it). Of course, he forgot about his bento and had a school lunch ::sniffle sniffle:: - so this beautiful bento had to be thrown away . . . uneaten ::SOB::. (Don't worry, I rescued the giraffe.)


  1. Looks delicious!! I just love gnocchi but have never tried to make it, was it easy?

  2. Boo on Goose! ;-)

  3. As I cheated and bought pre-made gnocchi at Sams Club . . . the directions were - bring water to boil. Put in gnocchi. Wait 3 minutes or until gnocchi floats to top. :P
