To make your own gnocchi at home:


  • 4 medium russet potatoes (approx. 2 lbs)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 ¾ cups flour


Boil unpeeled potatoes in salted water until cooked through, but not more. Allow to cool, peel and grate. Place grated potatoes in a bowl. Stir in egg and salt, then slowly incorporate the flour until dough is no longer sticky. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly. Make 1/2 inch rolls, and cut into 1 inch pieces. Press lightly with a floured fork to make the shape. Then you can freeze the gnocchi for later, or cook them in boiling water until they float, about 2 minutes, then drain.

    The flavor is delicious, however, a thickener in the sauce is missing from the recipe. After baking, it was very soupy. Next time I’ll add a thickener to the sauce. It is a keeper, however. Very quick to prepare, and if you use frozen spinach (defrosted with all the liquid squeezed out) easy to keep all the ingredients on hand.
