Pasta is a fall favorite, I mean we all start to crave carbs when the sun starts to go down sooner. My roommate and bestfriend decided that she wanted to make gnocchi so we went for it. Love Bakes Good Cakes provided us with a great guide on how to be pro’s. Be your own pasta granny and make homemade gnocchi with your best pals like I did!
- 2 Medium Potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 Eggs, Slightly Beaten
- Pinch Salt
Let’s Get Cooking
After peeling and quartering the potatoes and place them in a pot of boiling water. Cook the potatoes for about 15 min, until they are able to slide off the fork. Drain the potatoes from the water and mash them.
Remove a cup of the mashed potatoes and place into a medium bowl. Add in the flour + egg + salt and mix until the dough forms a ball. Divide the ball into 4 equal parts and on a floured surface, roll into long snakes. Cut the snakes into 1/2 inch pieces.
To add the grooves, place a fork upside-down and roll the gnocchi off the tines.
In a large pot of salted boiling water, place the gnocchi in. Let cook for about 5 minutes and until they float to the top. Drain the gnocchi and serve with your favorite pasta sauce!
This recipe proves that though a food might seem scary but in reality it is very scary. Take on that challenge for foods or recipes that seem intimidating. Add loads of cheese and you’ll go to bed with a full belly and a big smile.
