A few weeks ago, I decided that it was time to make my own gnocchi (potato dumplings). I'm not really sure what made me decide it, but somehow I knew it was time. Since I'd never made them before I decided to pick a recipe that I knew would be simple and yet tasty. So I pulled out Mark Bittman's trusty yellow primer, How to Cook Everything and got started. To see step by step pictures on how I made gnocchi with pesto, plus get a great basic recipe to try on your own,
