Gnocchi

Next week is already Thanksgiving!! What a wonderfully delicious time of year.  I LOVE Thanksgiving. Unfortunately this year, I'll be working on that day.  Photographing Football players and missing out on a delicious Turkey dinner.  But the biggest thing I'll miss out on is the leftovers. So today I'd like to share a post on a delectable take on reusing leftover mashed potatoes.  Homemade Gnocchi. 

This is an easy recipe and please feel free to add the Gnocchi to any pasta sauce or toppings that you might like.

Gnocchi

30 minutes Prep time
2-3 minutes Boiling per batch of pasta
9 Servings

·       1 Eggs
·       2 Cups Mashed Potatoes
·       2 Cups Flour w/extra for rolling
·      1 tsp. Salt
·      1 Cup Flour


In a large bowl mix together your egg, salt, mashed potatoes, and flour.  You want the dough to come together but not be too sticky. So feel free to add extra flour if you need to.





Cut the dough into quarters.  Roll out each quarter with the extra flour, and cut into small pillow like shapes.



Take a fork and press down on the pillow and then roll up.  The shape isn't super important, it just make them look like gnocchi and allow tomato sauce to get into each nook and cranny.




Start your water boiling.  Take batches of the gnocchi, and boil each batch 2-3 minutes or until they float to the top of the water.  Put cooked gnocchi aside as you work through each batch.



I then added the cooked gnocchi to some veggies and homemade tomato sauce. You can dress up yours with anything from fresh tomato sauce to brown butter sage sauce.
