Can I substitute all purpose flour for semolina flour?

Specifically for gnocchi:

I have a ton of all purpose flour and I don't see myself using semolina flour much in the future.

You can, but the gnocchi will be a little softer. Semolina is what will help hold the mixture together which is why it's used in making pasta.

I haven't made this recipe specifically, but I make gnocchi quite often and always use all-purpose flour. You should be fine, just make sure the dough is the right consistency.
