Delicious gnocchi dinner and wine! The plate came out bubbling hot from the oven, but the smell of the fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce made it almost impossible for me to wait. The pasta was perfectly “al dente” and the crispy, broiled mozzarella on top, mixed with the rich tomato sauce, made for a great combination of flavors. Hopefully I will be back for this dish again before we leave! Jacquelyn O’Neill
Editor’s note: The wine is Castelli Romani from central Italy’s Lasio region. It is named after the 14 hillside and lakeside villages in the Colli Albani hills, which once played host to the nobility of ancient Rome. during the summer months.
