Thank you Lara for helping me with my first attempt at making Gnocchi. In short, the gnocchi was the perfect accompaniment to a rainy afternoon here on the west coast of North America.
3 large potatoes
flour (2 parts potato – 1 part flour)
Boil potatoes until soft and cooked through
Peel potatoes while still warm and mash until smooth with a sprinkling of salt and pepper
Collect into a ball and lightly knead (I’m sure this could use some refining)
Cut dough into fist-sized pieces and roll into a 2cm thick rope. Cut into small, bite-sized pieces.
Add to salted boiling water and cook until they float to the top (about 2 minutes).
Sprinkle with olive oil.
Mix with desired sauce, ingredients, etc.
Relax and enjoy!
