Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce

Recipe for the marinara:
I couldn't resist. What else is star anise good for?
Our gnocchi. It looks like a tiny leaf.
I think I made 200 of those things.
This is only part of it!
Once formed, boil the gnocchi in batches. The gnocchi will begin to float once it is ready to be taken out of the water.
After cooking the gnocchi, I put it into a baking dish and layered it with sauce, ricotta cheese and parmesan. Ben left to broil it at his mother's house because our new stove is on back order. Patiently awaiting :)
He also decided to bring home a baby goat. Ben's mother gave me this goat to raise (bless her heart). The goat's mother died and she needs a goat-mama. I'm doing my best. Her name is Alice.
