You probably didn't do anything wrong. I think thats the texture.

won't be cooking them again then lol, my daughters face was a picture!..Thank you :o)
They normally taste like that to me, even if restaurant cooked. I try to avid them. Their very odd.

Odd is a good word for them lol, I only cooked them after watching Hardeep on Celeb Masterchef and the judges were going on about how good his were, think I'll stick to big standard pasta next time, thank you :o)

for "big" read "bog" lol, the gnocchi has fuddled my brain!
I cooked them once. Didn't like them at all, found them very strange.
I too thought that i had done something wrong, but now i realise that i hadn't, their obviously meant to be like that!

Weird!!!
Thats what they should taste like as they are made from mashed potato and polenta flour. I love gnocchi, I think its yummy, just very bad for you.
If you don't like the texture, then I'd advise you to oven bake them. That way you'll get some with a nice chewy crunch to them.
boil em, drain em, stick in a backing dish , stir in some pesto, throw mozarella and parmesan on the top top and cook (about 200c) unti golden brown and bubbling.
you didn't do anything wrong - i used to live in italy and they're horrible there too! it's like boiling a potato cake!

Lol, glad it's not just me then, to be honest I ate two after they were cooked, thought yuck and said I wasn't hungry lol, gave the rest to hub and daughter........they were impressed till they tasted them!
