How to make it

  • Cover potatoes in a large pot with cold water.
  • Bring the water to a boil until the potatoes are easily pierced with a skewer (30 minutes) do not over cook. Drain potatoes and let stand until cool enough to handle. Scrape the skin off the potatoes with a paring knife.
  • Press the peeled potato through a ricer.
  • Spread the riced potatoes into a thin even layer on a work surface. Let cool completely.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg, salt, pepper, and nutmeg together.
  • Gather the cold potatoes into a mound and form a well in the center.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the well. Knead the potato and egg mixture
  • together with both hands, gradually adding the grated cheese and
  • enough flour, about 1 1/2 cups, to form a smooth but slightly sticky dough.
  • It should take no longer than 3 minutes to work the flour.
  • Use a knife or dough scraper to scrape the sticky dough from the work surface back into the dough as you knead.
  • Wash and dry hands. Dust the dough, your hands and work surface lightly
  • with remaining flour. Cut the dough into 6 pieces and set off to 1 side of
  • the work surface. With 1 piece of dough, form a long rope using your hands
  • in a back and forth motion.
  • Slice the rope into 1/2-inch pieces. Press each piece into the tip of a fork,
  • with your thumb roll the gnocchi off the fork. Set on a baking sheet with flour.
  • Cook immediately in boiling salted water. They are cooked when they rise to
  • the surface, about 1 minute. Toss in Creamy Lemon Sauce and serve.
  • Creamy Lemon Sauce:
  • Saute the minced garlic in butter on medium heat.
  • Add the flour. Cook for 1 minute. Add the cream and lemon zest.
  • After the gnocchi are cooked, toss in the sauce then top with Parmesan.

    The recipe is very much like my grandmother's, but we didn't roll the bits off a fork. We simply rolled them on the floured board. Worked fine. I like your lemon sauce, too.
