Gnocchi (noh-kee) is a deliciously filling small potato dumpling dish. Gnocchi is very easy to prepare by mixing flour, egg, and potato. It is traditionally served as a pasta dish. Variations include semolina, pumpkin, sun dried tomato and spinach. Gnocchi is enjoyed around the world and with good reason--it is a versatile dish, inexpensive to prepare, easy to make, and delicious. This recipe serves 2-3 people. Double it up for a dinner party.



Boil the potatoes. Place unpeeled potatoes into a large saucepan and add enough water to cover them. Place on a high heat, add 3 teaspoons (1 tablespoon) of rock salt, then leave to boil. Check the "Warning" section below, however.
  • Drain potatoes. When the potatoes are tender, after about 20 minutes of boiling, turn the heat off and tip them into a colander to drain. Peel the potatoes.To protect your hands, use a tea towel to hold the potatoes as you peel away the skins with a knife.
  • Mash the potatoes. Pass the still hot potatoes through a passatutto (or potato ricer). This method is recommended as air gets trapped in the potatoes making for a lighter gnocchi. If you don't have one you can, of course, use a masher but the end result won't be as good.
  • Add the egg and flour. Add 2 generous pinches of salt and a pinch of pepper. Crack the egg and stir in quickly before the temperature of the potato cooks it. (The egg is optional, though.) Add 2 handfuls of the flour. Mix until it's all absorbed.
  • Form a dough. Turn the potato onto a wooden surface and tip the rest of the flour on top. Use your hands to mix it together. After a minute or two it will form into a dough. Knead lightly. When it reaches a pliable consistency, it's ready.
  • Form the gnocchi.
  • Boil water. Fill a large pan with water and add 3 teaspoons of rock salt. Place over a high heat, put on the lid, and bring to the boil.
  • Tap the gnocchi from the tray into the boiling water. This method will stop the boiling water from splashing your hands. Give them a little stir and leave to cook.
  • Wait for them to reach the surface. When the gnocchi have all bobbed to the surface, they're ready to serve. Scoop them out with a sieve, shake off the water and transfer them to a tray. Drizzle a little oil over them and give the tray a shake.
  • Stir the gnocchi into a warm sauce of your choice. As a final touch, you can grate a little Pecorino cheese over the top. This dish works exceptionally well with a rosé wine.
