Not sure if I should post this in the LA Board instead. One of my favorite dishes EVER is the roasted bone marrow spinach gnocchetti at Bestia. I made the mistake of taking my kids there last week and they love it. My 7-year old is now asking for the gnocchetti for his birthday!
I thought, I can’t get a reservation for October, but I can try to make it. The ingredients on the menu are pretty simple: Roasted Marrow Bone. spinach gnocchetti, crispy breadcrumbs, aged balsamic. I also discovered that Garni Meat in Pasadena sells beef marrow bones. And, he will cut it lengthwise if you want. Score!
I found a recipe on the web which was basically: buy pre-made gnocchi, roast marrow bone, toast gnocchi with breadcrumbs and add balsamic vinegar. Seems too simple? What say you? No garlic, no…anything else? I’m going to try it as written (except for the pre-made gnocchi), but if anyone has advice, I’ll be grateful for it! A 7-year old’s happiness depends on this!
