I attempted gluten-free gnocchi using a recipe from Mario Batali. While the gluten-free gnocchi didn’t turn out so well, his butternut squash and spicy red onion tomato sauce is fantastic!
This weekend, I watched Mario Batali’s gnocchi recipe video on the NY Times website, and thought I’d try to replicate the dish with gluten-free flour. I’m going to be honest – I had mixed results. The gnocchi did not stay together very well (I think the gluten definitely adds essential elasticity to the dumplings), but the homemade tomato sauce Batali makes in the video was absolutely superb. The sauce has caramelized butternut squash and red onions, hot peppers, and tomato. I’m going to try to make the recipe again sometime, substituting gluten-free pasta for the gnocchi.
