Homemade Gnocchi

I LOVE gnocchi. Every time I go to an Italian restaurant and I see them on the menu... I just have to get them. We've tried many times making them at home, but they never came out pillowy-soft, melt in your mouth, like at certain restaurants. Then we tried making it with this recipe, and well it's a keeper. Buon Appetito!


4 potatoes
3 cups flour
1 egg
a pinch of salt
(some water if needed)
1/2 cup parmigiano cheese

let's make it

1. Boil the potatoes and once cooled, place them through a ricer.
2. Clear and open, free area on a tabletop. Place riced potatoes down on flat area and place in flour, egg, cheese, and salt. Mix it all together and knead (softly) it into a dough ball.
3. Then take a knife, and separate the ball, slicing it into 4-5 sections.
4. Then from each section, knead it into long pieces, rolling in and out. Use a sprinkle of flour if it begins to stick.
5. Cut each long piece into pillow-like cubes.
6. Take a fork and pat it in some flour.
7. Take every single piece of gnocchi and run it softly over the fork to make the ridges.
8. When done with the gnocchi, place them on a flour-dusted surface, so they don’t stick.
9. Bring to boil a large pot of water.
10. Place a few gnocchi into boiling water. Once they begin to rise up to water surface, wait another minute. Then remove them from water.
11. Serve them with your sauce of choice over them.
