Hi to the boards. I'm from Italy, eastcoast. Where have you been more precisely? Gnocchi and the other kind of pasta are different in the various regions. The base (potatoes) remain the same, but the style and ingredients can vary, making them even tastier than the ones you ate. Gnocchi is with tomato sauce and ragu (usually pork or beaf meat sliced in little balls), according the tradional recipe, that I found a little boring.
I reccomand you buying directly import pasta, I don't know if it's easy to find, but I think in some Italian-import shop you can welcome yourselves with anything you are in search of.
I wasnt really talking about one specific kind of gnocchi, rather I was trying to raise awareness of this delicate problem. Everybody knows what spaghettis are, but what about gnocchi? when need to raise the profile of gnocchi.
