Note: Other recipes ask to prepare a large pot of barely boiling water. Working in small batches, drop each piece of gnocchi into the water. Let cook for about one minute. When they float to the top, remove with a slotted spoon. Place into a colander to drain. I skip that step. 1) Because it is time consumer and 2) It doesn’t work so well when I do it and 3) I find it unnecessary.
