IMG_2875

This week’s Sunday Supper theme is Retro Recipes.  I was reminded a couple weeks ago about one of my favorite restaurants when I made some German Lentil Soup from Portland Oregon’s Der Rheinlander.

Truffled Gnocchi with Peas and Chanterelles

There are no truffles at all in this recipe, Chanterelles in fact, but I couldn’t find them and went with a mixed gourmet mushroom package from Papa Joes grocery.
