I have been lusting at the thought of purple gnocchi for weeks! The secret of how they turned purple is my own, but I will say they taste like any generic potato gnocchi recipe regardless! Sweet Italian sausage is a great pair with any pasta dish, and happily, I found a few links in the fridge. Green peas are a beautiful addition to color along with torn garden basil and nasturtium leaves. And although my mother got snippy when I cut her sunflowers off the plant, I continued to use them for a burst of color in the photo~ sorry mama, but I did feed you dinner.
