I’m going to tell you a scoop, this time it is the right time to make his homemade gnocchi ! Why you tell me ? Because my ptite lady this is the period of floury potatoes, old potatoes, which will leave their place to new in some time, and the old potato wrinkled is perfect for the gnocchi. Then of course, it may not be the scoop you were expecting but I have nothing else to put you in the tooth ! Let’s go back to our gnocchi, and there you could “pimp” it a little with the basil because, yes, it is spring and we want the greenery (and not just salad !). Accompanied by oyster mushrooms, these gnocchi with basil will make their small effect with your children’s/your sweetheart/your mates/Grandma Odette… (cross out the useless mention). Serve as is for one version without milk or with a ton 1/2 of the parmesan cheese, but I decline any responsibility !

In short, the gnocchi is a bit long to do, then find some small hands to help you, and then this is nicer to put the hands in the dough !
