According to a legend, on the 29th day of the 4th century, Saint Pantaleon wandered hungry through an Italian village looking for a hot and delicious dish of food.
Camouflaged as a wanderer, Pantaleão knocked on one of the houses asking for food. Even though they were suspicious and had little food, a family let the stranger in.
The meal yielded exactly seven units of gnocchi for each of those present. In exchange for the kindness, the saint left a souvenir for the hosts. When collecting the dishes, the family noticed the presence of many gold coins under each dish.
After traveling the world, the story of fortune gnocchi became a ritual that is celebrated in several countries. To this day, families carry out the tradition of placing coins or notes under the plate and eating the seven masses at the end of each month.
According to belief, this brings fortune and good luck for the rest of the month for those who perform the ritual. Gnocchi was created in the Middle East,
In ancient times, when the Romans began exploring different areas, they discovered the recipe and took it to Italy. For this reason, the dish is known as originating from that region.
In Sardinia, it is possible to prepare it with various types of sauces such as, for example, white, sugo, bolognese, with cheese or even an invention of the cook.
