Gnocchi uses very simple ingredients to create something that tastes sublime. Store-bought frozen gnocchi simply can’t compare – but the warnings on the recipes I’d read made me think it must be hard to make. I didn’t find that to be the case when I actually tried it, though you do have to be willing to get your hands a bit messy.
Another soup inspired by the remnants of a holiday feast, this Polish turkey soup was an excellent way to dispose of the turkey carcass from our Thanksgiving feast. With a rich broth and tasty dumplings filled with leftover shreds of meat, it was very inviting on a cold fall day.
