Nutritional values

The high protein content from the cottage cheese in this dish supports musle building, while the essential oils stimulate the intestines to produce bile, which makes it easier for the body to process heavy foods.

Gnocchi dishes are usually prepared from potatoes, making this iteration much lower in carbs and calories.

Quarter the dough, form into 4 thumb-thick rolls, cut into pieces about 1-inch long and decorate with the back of a fork. Place the gnocchi in plenty of boiling salted water and bring to a boil.
