Love this gnocchi with ham though I didn't add the peas this time around because they weren't too tasty.

Accidently used salted butter instead of unsalted! Please be wary of the differences because they are HUGE! With the salted butter it was really bitter.

Milani Gefre

Great and easy to make, didn't go with the frozen peas instead used some fresh ones.
