Best packaged gnocchi

What's your favorite brand of packaged gnocchi? Looking for something tasty without a lot of preservatives or weird ingredients. I live in Seattle so I have access to Fred Meyer/Kroger, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, etc. Thanks!

Best answer: I LOVE Trader Joe's sweet potato gnocchi! In the freezer.

Best answer: Trader Joes gnocchi gorgonzola. Fatty, but delicious.

I have a TJ's gorgonzola gnocchi hack where I mince and cook bacon, dump out most of the grease, then add the gnocchi and cook as normal. It's pretty great.

Coming at it from another direction, why not make your own? Microwaving the potatoes is a slick trick that makes it even easier than home-made pasta.

Thirding trying the TJ's Gorgonzola gnocchi. You can practically hear yourself getting fatter while eating it, but it's so good!

Best answer: Just the plain old gnocchi in the Italian section at Trader Joe's is still awesome!

Another vote for TJ's. They have a frozen one that's in some sort of tomato sauce, and it is really good. (I haven't read the ingredients list, though, so it may not strictly fit your needs.)

I use Trader Joe's dried gnocchi and love it.
I boil them and then add TJ's Bruschetta sauce and some cheese (parmesan, chevre, what have you).

Response by poster: I'll give Trader Joe's a try, both dried and frozen! It honestly never occurred to me to look in the freezer section at a store previously.
