Potato Gnocchi with Prosciutto & Kale
A potato gnocchi recipe is a fun way for me to give my family a classic Italian dish and mix it up from the pasta meals that we eat so often. There are many types of gnocchi dumplings from egg to flour to cheese, but I cook most often with the common potato gnocchi. I love how tender they get when cooked properly, delicious!
Depending on how much kale and chard you add this dish could get very healthy. You could easily load up this recipe with more veggies like bell peppers, olives or chopped mushrooms and still have the delicious sauce, gnocchi and cheese on every bite… a little can go a long way!
