Worst. Dinner. Ever.

Tonight was, by far, the absolute most disastrous dinner attempt. I am only blogging about this in the hope that someday, I will look back on this and laugh.

I tried my hand at home-made gnocchi once, and I was relatively successful. So I felt somewhat ready to brave this recipe for Spinach Gnocchi with Blush Sauce.

Two hours later, I found myself near tears, cooking Ronzoni pasta while staring at potato play-doh and sauce the consistency of pudding.

I have NO idea what happened to the gnocchi, but after cooking/draining, this is what was left behind, oozing out of the holes of the colander:


I followed the recipe for the sauce to the letter. The letter!! And yet it was this absolute disgusting blob in a pot. I actually tried to thin it out by adding some crushed tomatoes and another cup of milk; nope. It didn't taste too bad, actually, but the consistency was just too weird.

I'm not even going to bother posting the recipe. Don't try it. It was awful. If you are that interested, click on the link above, but consider yourself properly warned.

  1. Aww, thanks for sharing - because I realize that I am not the only one that follows the recipe to the letter only to have the whole thing turn out inedible.
