May 10, 2021

Prep Time- 90 minutes
Cook Time- Between 2 and 3 minutes (until floating)
Total Time- 93 minutes
Servings- Feeds 4-6 people
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 egg
4 Russet Potatoes
1 tbsp salt

First cut 4 potatoes in half (lengthwise as shown in video), then place potatoes face cut side up on baking sheet covered with tin foil. Place in oven for an hour (till soft) on 450 degrees. While potatoes cook, you can start your sauce (recipe below) or vice versa. When Potatoes are done and can be easily punctured with fork remove from oven and let sit to cool for about 10 minutes. When cooled off scoop the inside of potato out with table spoon. Once you’ve scooped out the insides of potatoes, chop up the potatoes very fine with tip of spatula or use a ricer if you have one (Be sure not to mush the potatoes). Next take a large bowl and add 1 ½ cups of flour, all the potatoes, salt, and egg. Start to work in the flour with the potatoe and the dough will start to come together. Once dough comes together cover it and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Take small chunks of dough and start rolling to make logs about a half inch thick (Use flour on hands and cutting board to prevent sticking). After rolling the logs begin to slice them with sharp knife in small pieces the size of a marble. After all Gnocchi are cut place in boiling water for a few minutes or until floating, then strain and add your sauce. Buon Appetito!
