Gnocchi

5 Steps

  • Step 1

    Roast potatoes in oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until tender.

  • Step 2

    Peel and pass through food mill while still warm.

  • Step 3

    Add the rest of the ingredients (flour, yolk, salt) and mix together with your hands. Knead slightly until you have a formed ball of dough.

  • Step 4

    Cut ball of dough into a few sections, roll sections out into strips and cut small dumplings (roughly 1 inch). If you would like gnocchi to have small grooves, use a gnocchi paddle or roll the dumplings down the back of a fork.

  • Step 5

    Gnocchi recipe makes enough for roughly 10-12 people.

Tomato Sauce

7 Steps

  • Step 1

    Cook tomato in a pot on low heat for 45 minutes.

  • Step 2

    In a separate pot, cook oil and onion on low heat for 30 minutes.

  • Step 3

    After 30 minutes, add onion and oil mixture to the tomato pot and cook low to medium heat for another 40 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Let cool, then blend to your desired consistency.

  • Step 5

    Boil a large pot of water. Salt liberally and cook gnocchi until they float to the top. Reserve pasta water.

  • Step 6

    Add tomato sauce, gnocchi (sauce feeds 6-8 people so add gnocchi accordingly) and a small amount of pasta water and cook on medium-high heat briefly (just to bring the sauce together).

  • Step 7

    Finish with torn basil and grated Parmigiana.
