Last week I made the cinnamon butter gnocchi for carnival. I realized that it was the first time I published a recipe with gnocchi. Although I like this Italian potato specialty pasta a lot, I never published a recipe with gnocchi. So I decided yesterday to follow up immediately with a second gnocchi recipe: vegetarian gnocchi with yellow bell pepper.

About carnival

Carnival is the week of festivities before Ash Wednesday when the 40-day fasting period before Easter starts. Nowadays the fasting period is much less intensive than the feasting period that precedes it. But to give myself a good feeling, I made a vegetarian dish on the first fasting Friday.

About International Woman’s day

For the first time, the International Women’s Day is a public Holiday in Berlin. I am very glad for that, however I hadn’t anticipated that the shops would be closed, so I had to improve with some ingredients. but it worked out all very well ๐Ÿ™‚ On the International Women’s Day I wanted to make a special pasta version, something different from the classical tomato-cream sauce. Of course, it should taste and feel like Italy also.

As mentioned before, I had to improvise a bit. The Dutch Gouda cheese may be a surprising ingredient for an Italian gnocchi recipe. I wanted to use some Parmigiano, but then used the Gouda instead. It is also a matured cheese with a strong taste. Similarly you can use cream instead of coconut milk. You can then use less of it (250 gram). Now I took the whole can and took some patience to let it reduce.


As I am quite happy with this surprising yellow combination, I submitted it to this weeks #cookblogshare, hosted by recipesmadeeasy this week. This is a very group of professional bloggers that share their knowledge and best practices. And of course their great recipes ๐Ÿ™‚
