    Hey Michael, I am back to tell you that I made these and they were so yummy! Loved the shrimp sauce, the red pepper flakes gave it a nice kick. This is the first potato gnocci recipe that I had success with! I ruined the first batch, overboiled it, and they turned into mush. I was real careful after that and removed them right as soon as they floated. I then browned them a little in the butter sauce. Great recipe, definitely keeping! Added my picture, hope that's OK. Adding this to the "I made it" group.

    Trigger, my friend, you have taken back to my youth watching the aunts in the kitchen on Christmas Eve and then eating the Gnocchi as it was served for dinner. It has been a long time but I think I can still remember the taste. I have bookmarked this to definitely try and introduce homemade gnocchi to a new generation. It looks and sounds beautiful...thank you for sharing. High-five!

    I soon as I saw the recipe title I zoomed right on over! To tell you the truth, I have not been successful with potato gnocchi so I just purchase it fresh from my farmer's market. I noticed that your version has no egg in it; perhaps that might be better for me to try.

    I'm going to try making gnudi gnocchi next. Have you ever made that?

    OH Trigger you have done it again! I love Gnocchi, I can just smell the garlic, sauteing in the butter and olive oil with the fresh shrimp. The thyme & basil and then the pinch of red pepper flakes to add just the right amount of heat, just put this over the top.....:)
