Gnocchi had always been one of those dishes that I talked about, but never actually got around to doing —until now. And it's true what they say, it is easier to make than you think. This perfect-for-winter-weather recipe has a sweet cider reduction sauce that practically makes it dessert for dinner.Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Sweet Potatoes.
Whenever this orange starch is added to a dish, an element of sweet follows behind it — hence its name: sweet potato. The element of sweet in this recipe is cinnamon, and its presence results in a crispy, slightly sweet, nugget of sweet potato gnocchi.

Gnocchi is an easy pasta dish to make at home, and with the addition of a classic fall staple like sweet potatoes, it becomes one of the easiest dishes to whip together for your Thanksgiving celebration.
