Homemade Classic Gnocchi with Moms Tomato Sauce
In the past I’ve struggled with gnocchi, I found they were either too soft, too sticky, too rough or too dry. This recipe doesn’t present any of those issues, instead it’s PERFECT! So here it is; the best gnocchi recipe.
4 medium potatoes
1 cup flour +extra
Salt to taste
Homemade tomato sauce (family recipe to be posted soon!)
Parmesan cheese, grated
Cut the potatoes in half and microwave for 10 minutes then roast the potatoes for 15-30 min in the oven at 400 until a fork can puncture the potato easily. Once they are cooked scoop the flesh and mash it. To that add 1 cup flour, 1 egg and a pinch of salt. Combine everything and then kneed until combined. If it’s sticky add more flour. Separate into 4 balls. On a floured surface roll each ball into a long log about 1 cm high. Cut the dough into 1 inch pieces. Use a fork to give the gnocchi their signature look. Simply press and roll the gnocchi down on the fork. Bring water to a boil, add salt to the water and cook the gnocchi in batches. When they float to the top they are done! Serve with a delicious creamy tomato sauce, top with parmesan cheese and Buon Appeito!
