    Any pasta substitutions?

  2. Great recipe! However, I didn’t use Himalayan salt, instead I just used garlic salt.
    I made these to go in chicken and gnocchi soup and they held their shape very nicely!

    Is there nutritional information for these? How many do you get approximately from one batch?


    • Logan Childress


      The nutrition info has been updated. We didn’t use to do this in the early days of our site but have been adding the info to older recipes as we have time. You should be able to get about 30 pieces of gnocchi out of this, depending on how large you make them. Hope this helps!

  4. Hi I’m eating this right now as my family eats pasta – not even jealous!!! Great recipe- I’m from New Zealand and just used cheap Colby block cheese – worked perfectly and stayed together! I’m sure it will go really well with a huge variety of sauces. Thank you!!

  5. Would these work in a soup or would they break apart?

    • Logan Childress


      They should work in a soup but might be best to add them right before serving to each bowl. We’ve had mixed reports of them breaking apart in different circumstances. Hope this helps!

  6. How do they stay together in the water? As soon as I boiled them they fell apart instantly. Couldn’t even keep em in for a minute.

    • Logan Childress


      We didn’t have a problem with this, but that’s not to say anything. Maybe we have gotten lucky? What kind of mozzarella are you using? Pre-shredded or block and shredding yourself? Regular or low-moisture? Just curious so we can see if we can replicate the issue and help you.

  7. Do you think I could use Monteray Jack instead of the Mozzerella?

    • Logan Childress


      You probably could, but it would be best to experiment with it first. Let us know how it works! We are curious to know too!

  8. I’m curious if these could act like dumplings for a chicken and dumplings recipe as well? I’ve never had gnocchi so I’m not really sure what to expect.
