Nettle Gnocchi

It's mid May here in Maine, so many wild foods including nettle's, are in abundance. This of course, means it's gnocchi season! Although making pasta from scratch seems a bit daunting, it is quite easy to do and the end results will yield a much more delicious end product then anything can come from a box. Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) is highly regarded in herbalism for it nutritive properties.
