Hi Everyone! This is Vinya, I’m posting this recipe for my mom… My little sister and I made this meal a week ago. We used the gnocchi recipe from Donna of http://cookinginlucca.blogspot.com It was delicious! I converted the recipe to kgs…makes enough for 4 very hungry people but I suggest making double so that you can store it for another meal :) Having made gnocchi only once before I was excited by how fast shaping the gnocchi becomes after little practice.
The tomato sauce recipe comes from here: http://theorkamfoodjournal.tumblr.com/post/14550275047/vinyas-delicious-penne hmmmm yummy!
2 cups of flour
salt to taste
Boil the potatoes in their jackets until soft. Drain cool and peel. Use a potato ricer to rice them (We used a fork and fluffed the potatoes, never used a ricer so wouldnt know the difference) .Add flour, salt and work with your hands into a dough. Break off chunk, roll into a sausage like cylinder, cut into 1” pieces. Flour lightly. use your finger to press them against the back of a fork and roll it off the fork to make the indentations
Toss into boiling water, when they come to the top they are done.
