Be careful how you word it when you ask your friends if they'd like to check out your gnudis (with a silent 'g' it's pronounced "nudey.") However, they'll all fall in love with this ricotta-based football-shaped pasta that's as fluffy as clouds. Gnudi is similar to gnocchi — it's a soft, thick pasta made with flour and egg but is lighter because it's main ingredient is ricotta cheese. The consistency can almost be compared to a matzoh ball — but oh-so-much-more delicious!
I definitely get asked for slow cooker recipes more than anything else. As it gets colder outside the number of requests for war, comforting food just skyrockets!
This is a really great recipe that I modified to be slow cooker friendly. It’s tasty, relatively inexpensive to make, and leftovers make for a delicious soup!
In addition, Giada Laurentii’s recipe calls for a touch of bittersweet chocolate over top to really make the flavours of the dish pop. It was certainly a first for me!
Hanukkah is right around the corner, and I have been cooking up lots of traditional holiday dishes. I thought, though, that I’d opt for a twist on the traditional latke. These hybrid sweet potato latkes topped with some super charged sour cream make for a great combo.
If cilantro’s not your thing, try mixing it up with another fresh herb you may prefer.
