"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

2 large egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Cut rope into 1-inch pieces.

Repeat rolling, cutting and shaping with remaining dough.

Working in batches, add gnocchi to pot of boiling salted water; cook until gnocchi rise to surface.
