It is almost a ritual when we arrive at our country house late on Friday evening to have dinner based on gnocchi. Each time I prepare them differently, each time with some vegetables of course. Recently I really like the combination of burdock and parsley, I find the tastes match perfectly and the parsley color enhances the grayish white of the burdock. Both are also great with butter or olive oil. And with the gnocchi it fits perfectly. I cut the burdock in small sticks and blanched them, then in a frypan with a bit of olive oil I roast them, add the parsley, boil the gnocchi in the meantime and serve, with a bit more olive oil, and black pepper. It goes very well with parmegiano too!
All the best for this weekend!!!
