This dish is not about the little Gnocchi dumplings. These light, fluffy pasta balls have a mild taste and are the vehicle for a great sauce. This sauce centers around Prosciutto, that wonderful, cured ham, that is very thinly sliced, only a millimeter or two thick. It is salty but very flavorful, having an almost buttery texture. It is not loudly ham tasting at all. When proscuitto is lightly cooked, its aroma and flavors blossom.
Top this dish with sundried tomatoes to introduce new texture and sweet and intense flavors.
Note from Tassos: The popularity of sundried tomatoes unfortunately lowered their quality, rushing low quality, sawdust tasting tomatoes into commercial dehydrators. This created a product that was bitter, with floppy flesh and leached out flavor. Our sundried tomatoes are of an heirloom grown variety and authentically sun dried. What a treat quality brings to your dishes!
