Homemade Gnocchi

Published Tuesday, 25 November, 2008 by Kirsty

Italian potato dumplings, a great substitute for pasta



  • 2 potatoes
  • 250g (9 oz) plain flour
  • 1 egg


1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Peel potatoes and add to pot. Cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool and mash with a fork or potato masher.

2. Combine mashed potato, flour and egg in a large bowl. Knead until dough forms a ball. Shape small portions of the dough into long "snakes". On a floured surface, cut snakes into 1.5cm (1/2 in) pieces.

3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Drop in gnocchi and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until gnocchi have risen to the top; drain and serve with your favourite sauce.
