Tender gnocchi tossed with a classic pesto genovese is a popular first course, or primo piatto, in Liguria. This recipe first appeared in SAVEUR Issue #140 along with Laura Schenone's story Glorious Pesto

Pairing Note: The delicately flavored pesto pairs well with the buoyant Ligurian white Punta Crena Pigato 2009 ($25).
