How to make it
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop in potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool slightly, and peel. Season with salt, then mash potatoes with fork, masher, or in ricer. Place in large bowl, and stir in egg and olive oil. Knead in enough flour to make a soft dough.
- On a floured surface, roll dough into a long rope. Cut the rope into 1/2-inch pieces.
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Drop in gnocchi, and cook until they float to the top, about 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with your favorite sauce.
- You can add garlic, herbs and more to the potatoes to flavor your pasta.
- Add flour if needed to make dough not sticky. Real Gnocchi is a soft somewhat sticky pasta. Let them cook and handle dough and cooked pasta as little as possible for best results. Depending on your location or cooking range, cooking times and dough results may vary. You don't have to roll and make indentations. As served in Italy, they are cut into little square pillow looking pasta.
- This works great for dumplings in Soups, Stews & my favorite Chicken Paprikash!

I'm embarrassed that I only found this recipe after spelling "gnocchi" wrong.. -_- but what a happy mistake! Sounds like a great recipe, been meaning to try my hand at gnocchi.aimee in Studio City loved it
Real Gnocchi is not easy to make, Experience is the key to making it right. I like to bake the potatoes so they are drier to start out. Then I peel them and press them through a ricer for texture.
A nice glass of wine and some crusty garlic bre...moretrigger in loved it
