Now on my way from Rome to Positano, Ya gotta take a train from Rome to Naples, the pizza capitol of the world. Then from Naples, you need to get to a place called Sorrento. Just off the coast of Sorrento is the island of Capri, and if you drive around the coast line of the Sorrentine peninsula, then you’ll run into the famed Amalfi coast. But on that journey, there is a very good reason to stop in sorrento. I’m talking about gnocchi alla sorrentina, soft pillowy gnocchi, in sweet tomato sauce, tossed in fresh fior di latte or bufala mozzarella and baked to a bubbly, cheesy perfection. It's one of those simple yet spectacular Italian dishes and that’s what we’re going to make today.
