this was such a rich, delicious, earthy-tasting dish. chanterelles are in season right now so it's the best time of year to try this out. it feels like a fancy comfort food.
i didn't fuss with making the gnocchi from scratch--it can be found at world market. instead of boiling, i cut mine in halves or fourths and browned them over medium high heat before mixing them in right at the end.
