It’s pretty unfair that at most meals, we have to choose between our two favorite carbs: pasta and potatoes. That is exactly why we’re devoted to gnocchi, the miracle food that manages to combine both into soft little pillows of heaven. Plus, if you start with store-bought gnocchi (which we wholeheartedly endorse), they’re the ideal foundation for an easy weeknight meal. Here are 30 of our favorite easy gnocchi recipes.
