What do you do after an hour and a half of a 90s Cardio Dance Party with your best friend from middle school? Laugh, a lot, and eat double starch, of course. This dish should not be taken lightly. It sits in your stomach like a tons of bricks. But, if you are looking for a carb overload “winter-like” meal that includes some great summer produce – go for it. This dish was inspired by a recipe in Sunday Suppers at Lucques that included chanterelle mushrooms and a shocking sprinkle of buttered bread crumbs at the end. We substituted some irresistible King Trumpet Mushrooms we found like perusing the Super G Mart and skipped the buttered crumbs for the sake of our hearts.
We did not master the art of gnocchi form but it still tasted pretty good.
