    Traditionally, gnocchi — a tiny, pillow-shaped dumpling pasta that's light and airy — is made from flour, potatoes and eggs.

    First things first: where to find it. It's in the frozen aisle at Trader Joe's and it costs .69 for a 12-ounce bag (that's 2.5 servings at 1 cup each).

    So what's in it? Cauliflower is the main ingredient, followed by cassava flour (a gluten-free flour made from the root vegetable), potato starch, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.

    A 1-cup serving clocks in at 140 calories and 3 grams of fat. Traditionally, since some recipes call for cheese, a serving of gnocchi can run between 150 to 370 calories, with anywhere from 1 to 11 grams of fat.

    Trader Joe's cooking instructions recommend sauteing this gnocchi in a pan, though there are also directions for boiling and microwaving it, as well. You don't have to wait for this pasta to defrost, which is a big plus (you just pop the frozen dumplings in a pan), and add some butter or oil. It takes less than 10 minutes, too. One note here, though: Turn your stove's vent on, or else your whole house will smell like cauliflower.
