World Classics : Pizza n Pastas.. Gnocchi Recipe


A really simple gnocchi recipe..
Take mashed potato (mixture should be realllly smoooth) onto a lightly floured surface, and add about some plain flour.
Knead until you have a sticky mass and keep adding flour a little at a time until the dough is smooth.
Cut the dough into smaller sections, and roll each piece into a long cylinder about 2cms in diameter.
Then cut each cylinder into individual pieces in length.
Fill a large pot with water and generously salt the water with salt.
The water should begin to boil..
Meanwhile, shape the gnocchi by pressing each piece between your thumb and the tines of a fork, using a slight rolling motion. One side of the gnocchi should have the imprint of the fork and the other side a small indentation from your thumb..
When the water starts boiling rapidly, drop the gnocchi into the water. In about two to three minutes, the gnocchi will float to the surface of the water.
Let them cook about fifteen seconds more and then skim them out with a slotted spoon.
Drain the gnocchi well and serve immediately topped with a basic tomato sauce and grated Parmesan cheese, or with any of your favorite pasta sauces...
Buon Appetito..!!
