How to make it

  • Peel the potatoes, cut in quarters, cover with cold water, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and cook until tender. (For a different texture you can also bake your potatoes whole and cool and peel. You will require less flour to make the gnocchi.) Drain and mash. You should have about 2 cups.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, garlic powder, salt, a few dashes of paprika and nutmeg, and the chopped parsley.
  • Add the warm potatoes, eggs and turn out onto a floured surface. (if using cheese this is where you would add your cheese)Knead just until dough is well mixed and not sticky. Let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Roll chunks of dough on floured board into logs about 1 inch thick. Cut into diagonal slices about 3/4 inch thick. Make sure you leave a small indent for the sauce to rest in.
  • Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add gnocchi. After they rise to the surface, lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, uncovered.
  • Drain well and cover with your favorite pasta sauce.
