Camote Gnocchi

My children, Jaime and Rosanna came up with this recipe. They love to make pasta and suggested I try a kamote instead of the usual potato. This is a dish they can make on their won now, with very little supervision. Thank you Jaime and Rosanna, for inspiring me everyday

Once the gnocchi are formed and rolled out, take the back of a fork and make an imprint on the gnocchi. This is so that the gnocchi picks up any sauce you will add.
