A small potato dough dumpling that is Italian in origin. Cooked in boiling water and served with butter and Parmesan cheese or a variety of sauces, gnocchi can also be chilled, sliced, and then fried or baked. Gnocchi are often served as a side dish for meat and poultry. There is also a dried version of gnocchi that is made with semolina flour, rather than potatoes. The dried version is considered to be a type of pasta that is generally shaped into a form similar to cavatelli pasta.
