Instant Potato Gnocchi
by Barbara Lynch

I’m a curious person and have always wanted to push boundaries and experiment. Working with what my mother had in her kitchen at home, I began doctoring up canned food at age 13—from marinara sauce to clam chowder. You can make some really delicious (and unexpected) dishes out of inexpensive, packaged foods. You might think I’m crazy, but you can make pretty great gnocchi from instant potato flakes… don’t knock it ’till you try it.
