 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Large baking potatoes
  • 1 c Whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 2 c Pasta sauce of your choice


Gnocchi are little dumplings that are eaten like pasta. Flour gnocchi are
good, but potato gnocchi are superb.

Steam the potatoes in their skins until tender. When they are cool enough
to handle, peel and mash. Immediately add the flour and salt. Knead on a
lightly floured board until smooth. Sprinkle on a little more flour if the
dough sticks. Form into rolls about the thickness of your thumb. Cut into
3/4-inch sections and perss down lightly with a fork. Bring a large pot of
lightly salted water to a boil. Add the gnocchi and boil until they rise to
the top, about 5 minutes. Like all pasta, gnocchi should not be crowded in
the pot, so cook them in several batches if necessary. Drain and place in a
warm bowl. Mix the gnocchi with enough sauce to thoroughly coat them. Extra
sauce can be added at the table according to taste.

(She also has a recipe for sweet potato gnocchi which sounds great.
Proportions are exactly the same - just substitute 2 lbs sweet potatoes to
2 lbs baking potatoes.)
