Mortadella, Pinenuts & Leeks Gnocchi

Gnocchi Mortadella, Pinoli & Porriin italiano

You know when you really need something good, very good, to eat but first of all you don wanna spend 2 hours cooking and secondly you had pizza at least 75 times over the past month?!

So what do you do? You improvise something and it turns out to be that very good thing you really needed. Just by mixing together a few ingredients you had at home already.

That’s why you then feel like you must share this recipe with everyone!
