Cheesy Korean Gnocchi

This is the first time I used this Gnocchi in my kitchen. I am glad that I am given a chance by Casa Rinaldi & Singapore Home Cooks to try out this product. Do u know what is Gnocchi? Gnocchi is small dumplings made from potato, flour and usually serve with a sauce. It is widely use in Italian cooking. You can make your own Gnocchi at home but for busy working mummy like me, these convenient pack of Gnocchi come to my savior. Instead of using these Gnocchi it in the traditional Italian way, I will like to use use it to whip out a Korean's dish.

Every Gnocchi is coating with the spicy chilli paste and oozing cheese. To my surprise, my hubby & kids give thumb up for it. This dish goes very well with a glass of BEER! Say CHEESE & CHEERS to it!
