Potatoes Gnocchi with Pesto is a special dish for us: we love it! My grandmother often prepared them for me and now, it’s me preparing them for my husband and myself!
We think that the pesto Genovese dressing, a typical recipe from Liguria – the region I come from -, is perfect with the potatoes gnocchi. You have to try this first course if you haven’t ever tasted or prepared it before!
This recipe is easy and pretty quick to prepare: everybody can prepare it!
