Gnocchi are really age-old and they're made in all italian regions,
in different shapes, sizes, ingredients and condiments. It is a
simple yet difficult recipe, the risk is to make them too soft and
therefore everyone stick to each other, obtaining a single gnocco.
The other risk is to crush them, you have to be very delicate with
this recipe. This is our way:
ingredients for 4 hungry people:
500 gr flour (type 0)
1,2 kg potatoes
tip: better if you have same
cut the "tubes" in 3cm long pieces, you're creating the Gnocchi!
once you've cut all your "tubes", move delicately the gnocchi to
avoid them to stick. then, put them on a plate
repeat the steps until you've finished the dought
water is boiling, put salt in it (as you do for pasta) and push the
gnocchi inside (without crush them)
they're ready when they float (quick cook 3-4 min)
tip: turn them very delicately with the back of the wooden spoon
before (or during) the process, you'll have prepared a delicious
tomato sauce (or ragu or mushrooms or fish or 4cheeses)
strain gnocchi with delicacy, be careful to do not crush them, and
put them in the sauce, adding parmisan cheese
mix them, to have the sauce in everyone... they're delicious!
serve them with a good red wine and Buon Appetito!
Thanks for watching
hope you’ll enjoy your Gnocchi!
