The plan was to have the leftover gnocchi for dinner tonight. I went in for the first bite, prepared the gnocchi to be even heavier than last night. But to our surprise, the gnocchi were amazing today! Not perfect, but definitely light and fluffy, and definitely an improvement over last night.
So now we're even more baffled than before about where we went wrong - what was fixed by sitting in the fridge and then reheating in the microwave?
