Taste Test: Gnocchi

Photo: Caitlin Bensel
We tested dumplings with less than 250 calories and 500mg sodium per serving. One brand stood out in taste and texture.

Our Favorite: Gia Russa Whole Wheat Gnocchi with Sweet Potato 
 
$7.18, pack of 2 16-ounce packages
Fluffy, pillowy, and tender, this gnocchi has an earthy flavor that's mild enough for most sauces and a forward nuttiness when paired with browned butter and hearty sage or thyme.

Runner-Up: Gia Russa Gnocchi with Potato  
$7.18, pack of 2 16-ounce packages
Slightly salty, fresh potato taste with a delicate, buttery mouthfeel—a classic gnocchi in every sense. Still, we prefer the whole-wheat version of any food, especially when it's even more flavorful.
