The last post was about Ragu’, in this one a good combination of home made pasta and Ragu’. Gnocchi is a very simple pasta to make. Which are the ingredients? Just potatoes, flour and one egg.
INGREDIENTS (for 4/5 people):
1 kg potatoes
300 g flour
Peel the potatoes (if they are large cut them into pieces so they cook faster) and boil in salted water until they are cooked.
Drain and let cool down for 10 minutes, then mash with a potato masher, and finally add the flour a little at a time and the egg.
Knead the dough with your hands until it is pretty compact. Be careful not to add too much flour, otherwise they become very hard!
When the dough is ready, slice each slice and work with your hands until you get a long roll quite fine. Then cut each roll into small pieces in the shape of dumplings.
Put a saucepan of salted water and boil throw in the gnocchi: when rising to the surface they are ready.
Strain and pour into the pot and add the ragu’. Add some parmesan on the top.
