Is Gnocchi a Pasta or Potato?
Gnocchi is a type of Italian dumpling that is traditionally made with potatoes, flour, and sometimes eggs. While it is often served in a similar way to pasta, it is not technically considered a type of pasta because it is not made from wheat flour or semolina.
Instead, gnocchi is made from a potato-based dough that is shaped into small dumplings and boiled until they are tender.
