|Summer pumpkin & lemon thyme gnocchi with summer vegetables|
I love gnocchi. I really do. And I miss it during the warmer months. I guess it's not an option I consider because it tends to really be a dish that conjures up visions of a cold grey winter day where I have a ragu cooking away slowly, filling the house with it's delicious aromas, then teaming it with soft unctuous gnocchi, a drizzle if chilli oil and freshly grated parmegiano reggiano at the table as we sit down to dinner, warming and cosy...It's the epitome of the stodgy, heavy, comfort food we crave when its cold.
But what if there was a way of making it lighter? More summery?
