Review: Conte's Gnocchi

I have been eyeing the gnocchi made by Conte’s in my health food store’s freezer for a while now. I finally took the plunge and bought some last week. The price had been holding me back at close to $8 for a small package.

Conte’s has a decent sized gluten-free line of products, including:

CHEESE RAVIOLI 12oz
SPAGHETTI 16oz
ELBOWS 16oz
SPINACH/CHEESE RAV 12oz
FUSILLI 16oz
PIEROGIES ( POT/CH/ONION) 12oz
CHICKEN/BROC RABE 12oz
RIGATONI 16oz
PIEROGIES (POTATO/ONION) 12oz
CHEESE STUFFED SHELLS 12oz
SPIRALS 16oz
GNOCCHI

I have not tried any of their products previous to the gnocchi because most of them contain onions and I can’t eat onions. I was pleased to see the gnocchi was onion-free. The gnocchi was super easy to cook and made for a quick meal. I just warmed up a marinara and alfredo sauce to go along with the gnocchi.

I was very impressed by the taste and texture of the gnocchi, as were the kids. They both really enjoyed the meal. Great idea for hectic school or late work nights. I was disappointed that while the package says there are 3 servings in it, it really only served 2. Additionally, the sodium content was very high at almost 1000 mg/serving! That doesn’t even take into account any sauce or other ingredients you may add to the gnocchi.

Conte’s products can be purchased online here or feel free to give Conte’s a call to find the location nearest to you – 1-800-211-6607. Have you tried any of Conte’s products? For more reviews, check out the Conte’s Stuffed Shells that Tiffany Janes reviewed earlier this month.

    Good to see this available but way too much salt for me.

      Joan, I know what you mean. I was disappointed to see the sodium count and would love to know why that much is necessary.
