I made this a few weeks ago and the entire family, including 3 children ages 7-14 LOVED it. My 14 year-old picky eater just asked me to make it again. I asked "so soon?" to which she replied "I can't stop thinking about it". The only thing I will change next time is to double the gnocchi. I used a bag of frozen (I think 1lb.) which worked out well, but we had a lot of sauce leftover (so I boiled up some farfalle for the leftover sauce).
This is soooo delicious! I cooked it for some friends and it was a huge hit with everyone. I used store bought potato gnocchi instead of making my own and it cut down the time to prepare by a lot (and no one seemed to notice!) Will definitely prepare again.
