Is Gnocchi Healthy?

The first question you might be asking is “What is gnocchi”? Gnocchi is a type of pasta made of flour, eggs, and mashed potatoes.

So, is gnocchi healthy?

It is high in carbs and calories, and low in protein and other nutrients, so you can put it right there with pasta as a delicious food that isn’t the most healthy thing to eat.
