Method

  1. A variety of gnocchi exists, but the simplest and most widely encountered are those made with mashed potatoes and a little flour. To make them is simplicity itself. For a serving for four people, cook and mash 400 g of floury potatoes, then mix with 100 g of plain flour and an egg. Using your hands, roll a little of this mixture at a time into sausage shapes. Cut these into 3 cm chunks, then press with the tines of a fork to create a ridged impression (these ridges will help the sauce to stick). Add the gnocchi to boiling salted water, after a few seconds they will swim up to the surface. Scoop them out before dressing immediately with your chosen sauce.

Note

  • Green gnocchi are made by adding a little cooked, well-drained and very finely chopped spinach. Another type of gnocchi is what is known as gnocchi alla romana, and these are made with semolina or polenta. This is boiled in milk, mixed with egg and nutmeg then cut out and layered in a dish, before being baked with butter and Parmesan.
