Happy Tuesday! I made gnocchi for the first time today and I made way more than I can use for dinner. Does it freeze? And if so should I cook before freezing? Thanks!

mama was from naples & used it for everything- like we do potatoes- in broth -as a dumpling- with gravy(sauce) like ravioli-she would swell them(soak in apple juice)- put ina pan sprinkle with cinnamon sugar & bake-- yummy- sometimes a drizzle of honey--:-)

Thank you BigShotsMom, I freeze them without cooking them first. As said lay out on cookie sheet then put in zip lock bags. Hope you enjoy.
