    Cheri.... These are kick butt! Oh My God... I ate 2 helpings... so much for diet... but what a way to go! For real, I have NEVER had any as good.
    I had loaned my ricer out, and had to push through a colander. It worked.
    THANK YOU ...
    This needs a 10!

    Yes Savoury is an Italian herb. Sometimes when we don't have any a mixture of rosemary, thyme & basil is used. Just a family thing I guess. Savoury is a summer & winter perineal. I am so glad you liked the sage one & thanks for sharing Alexander!!

    Did you find out what savoury is? I am sorry but I forgot to answer you about that. It is easiest to remember that summer savoury is lighter and for summer cuisine, and winter savoury is much stronger and used for wintery stews etc.

    I actually made these last night with sage however and they are a 5.

    Question.... If I get an energy burst... can I freeze these? It would be worth the effort to make a double batch...

    Yum yum yum. I am always intimidated to make gnocci from scratch. But I love sage butter enough that I may brave the process one of these days!
