over the weekend: gnocchi with friends

gnocchiplural of gnoc·chi

(in Italian cooking) Small dumplings made from potato, semolina, or flour, usually served with a sauce

we love sunday night dinners with friends and this weekend we had one of the best ones yet.

our friends - the falks - invited us over for a traditional italian gnocchi feast - where everyone participated in the prep.  mama falk (i like to call her superwoman) outdid herself with two variations of homemade sauce for the carnivores and the non-meat eating crew.  then everyone got a chance to roll up their sleeves and roll out the dough for cutting followed by cooking. 

now this my friends is a home cooked meal, and when shared with great friends, good wine and the first break in the heat that we've seen in weeks, it doesn't get any better than this:
