Gnocchi with beef ragu

Gnochhi con Ragu.

The gnocchi can be made ahead of time and frozen, but is best kept for only a week or two. I also like to serve the gnocchi with a simple fresh tomato and basil sauce in the summer.

Fresh mozzarella, farro and cherry tomato salad.

Boiled farro is an awesome component of many salads. It also makes great tabouli. The mozzarella can be small and served whole, or large and torn. You can also use burrata – it's even creamier.
