Some 1 in a thread said Gnocchi cause its potato is not Pasta. Pasta is made from mor then Wheat-Rice

Soba Flour: Buckwheat - Buckwheat is a terrific flour for pancakes and makes tasty noodles

Flour: Rice
Chinese rice noodles and rice vermicelli are the most known rice noodles out there. However, other ethnicities such as Vietnamese and Indonesian also have their own versions. Rice noodles come in various forms: fresh, dried, thick, thin, sticks, bundles and even in macaroni shape. They taste great in soups or cold salads.

Thai Glass Noodles

Flour: Mung Bean
Gluten-free? Yes, but make sure it's made in a wheat-free facility
Thai call them glass noodles whereas Chinese call them bean threads or bean vermicelli. They are also known as cellophane noodles and usually turn translucent after being cooked.

Tofu Shirataki

Flour: Potato Family

Japanese harusame is made with potato flour; the greyish Korean dang myun is made with sweet potato flour. The popular Tofu Shirataki is made with yam flour and tofu.

Pure Yam or Pure Sweet Potato noodles

When I order Sukiyaki I ask for both Mung Bean noodles and the wider Yam Noodles. When I make it at home I go 50-50 with each

Kelp noodles - Have not run in2 these

The word gnocchi may be derived from the Italian word nocchio, meaning a knot in wood,or from nocca (meaning knuckle) or nookie (meaning when a guy and gal do it) It has been a traditional type of Italian pasta of (probable) Middle Eastern origin since Roman times. It was introduced by the Roman legions during the expansion of the empire into the countries of the European continent. In the past 2,000 years, each country has developed its own specific type of small dumpling, with the ancient gnocchi as their common ancestor.[citation needed] In Roman times, gnocchi were made from a semolina porridge-like dough mixed with eggs, and are still found in similar forms today, particularly the oven-baked gnocchi alla romana and Sardinia's malloreddus which do not contain eggs.

The use of potato is a relatively recent innovation, occurring after the introduction of the potato to Europe in the 16th century. Potato gnocchi are particularly popular in Abruzzo, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Veneto, Ciociaria and other provinces of Latium. As with other mashed potato dishes they are best prepared with starchy potatoes to keep a light texture.

Consider the well known Wheat Noodle. If you cook it OTHER THAN Al dente leave it in the water a few minutes 2Long and its more Mushy then Mashed Potatoes

When you buy Gnocchi from reputable restaurants, they show you the potato and let you choose your exact level of Gnocchiness

Wayyyyyyyyyyy back when I was investigating Gnocchi and making my own n trying out different combinations - Potato with flour vs Potato only - Its real real hard to have a super high ration of Potato and get something other then Lead weights in belly as outcome - Can be done but its just to much work

And YES I get your reference to In n Out letting me see my Potato b4 cooking - I found a PM today where humor is apparently in short order around these parts

Gnocchioligist

Wood be a good word for Scrabble and one wonders if one could get a job as Gnocchioligist and spread the wonder and mystery of Gnocchi - It can be served with just Basil n Garlic or the many splendors of Pasta sauces - Pesto and Gnocchi wood n eye need say nor more

I planted a huge amount of Basil yesterday and Gnocchi is on my list when its grown enough to harvest a few leaves

In that case, I suggest "Gnocchmost".

Nice Gnocchism. It could also be Gnocchiest, or most Gnocchisome perhaps.

Review

"James Beard Award winner Green teams up again with photographer Legato (after The Fishmonger’s Apprentice) to produce a beautifully photographed directory on how to make all types of pasta in your own kitchen, with just a few kitchen tools. And don’t think only of Italian—there are a few representative recipes from other countries, such as pot stickers, pierogi, and udon noodles. Recipes vary by shape, flour type, and flavoring. By following the easy, step-by-step instructions and hundreds of photographs, readers will be inspired to make their own delicious creations. The book contains many useful extras such as nutrition information, resources, and a glossary, but those who want to serve a homemade sauce along with their pasta fresca may need to consult another resource. VERDICT: This is a terrific choice for any library as it will be useful for both experts and novices alike. Mangia!"—Library Journal
