Gnocchi are little potato dumplings that cook up in minutes, welcoming the addition of any combination of vegetables, cheeses, meats, or sauces. Nutmeg adds such a wonderful, subtle flavor to this dish. Don't overdo it though - like with some other spices such as turmeric or cumin, too much nutmeg can taste medicinal and bitter. Just the right amount = heavenly. Trader Joe's sells dry gnocchi conveniently bagged and ready to toss into a pot of boiling water. It is shelf-stable and usually found with the pastas.
