Potato Gnocchi, a classic Italian preparation of potatoes, stands apart from potato fritters that are usually deep-fried. Instead, a mixture of potatoes and plain flour is shaped into flattened cylinders and boiled in salted water to make these dainty potato gnocchi. Handle the gnocchi carefully because it is quite delicate! It is, however, the perfect addition to this succulent sauce of mushrooms cooked with fresh cream and mixed herbs. Potato Gnocchi in Mushroom Sauce turns out to be a perfectly exotic dish that treats your palate to delicate textures and herby flavours. Serve along with Baked Spaghetti in Tomato Sauce and Baked Vegetable Risotto .
