This is a great way to impress guests, no one will know just how easy it is to make gnocchi!

Gnocchi

  6. Roll dough into ropes and cut into inch long pieces.
  7. Roll pieces over the backside of a fork to create grooves.

* You can freeze gnocchi in a single layer at this point, once frozen transfer to bags and store in your freezer. When cooking frozen gnocchi do not defrost first, cook them while frozen.

  2. Pull gnocchi out as they float to the top.
  3. Toss with desired sauce.

    This sounds so wonderful! I loved your video. You’re so calm on camera. I’d probably slice my finger, burn the mushrooms, and then proceed to just drink heavily. Looking forward to checking out the rest of your site…

    Great recipe and wow on the video and camera wo/men.
    good on the oven procedure and not the water – tells me you know your food. try adding a pinch of nutmeg – grated, it might put a smile on your face.
    Always a pleasure to see someone that loves food as much as I do…

    Your gnocchi recipe is one of the best!!! We are having a dinner party for 8 adults and would like to make this recipe. Is it possible to quadruple the flour, potatoes, etc. and have them come out as light as they do? Would an additional egg be necessary? Thanks again for a great recipe.
