When given the task to participate in “Eat Like an Italian Month” in October, which also marked National Pasta Day October 17 I just chuckled. I eat like an Italian every day, since I am 75% Italian. Not officially the percentage but that I what I grew up believing anyway. Caesar’s Kitchen is a fairly new line of USDA-Certified Organic and Certified Gluten-Free line of fresh-from-the-freezer gourmet pasta meals. I was given the choice of trying the frozen  Gluten-Free Ravioli  or a Vegan Potato Gnocchi that feeds at least four people, and we went with finding a fun and healthy recipe for the Gnocchi. Be sure to read all the way down to see the <GIVEAWAY> .
