Sweet Potato Gnocchi Sauce Recipe

Sweet Potato Gnocchi Sauce Recipe

Today I propose a recipe that is close to my heart : the recipe for potato gnocchi.

One of the many delicious recipes that my grandmother prepared, she called them : - or - strangulaprievt strangolapreti or Strozzapreti.

My grandmother, preparing the gnocchi with meat sauce twice a week, and do not run away from them either on Thursday or Sunday. I remember when I was cooking was always our beautiful porzioncina - pound :) - and it was always a pleasure to taste them and rediscover the same flavor, that flavor that never disappoints!

How to grandmothers!

Legend has it that a Neapolitan priest gourmet and hungry, he ate so quickly and in such abundance that they even stand a plate of dumplings smothered. From here the strange but distinctive appellation that Neapolitans give this ancient preparation.

What is certain is that, with the advent of the sauce ;), Strozzapreti were elevated to the rank of delicacy and with the potato then we have gained in softness and lightness so that surely now that priest did not remain more - strangled. - : D
