Potato Gnocchi !

Hey Friends!
How are you all?
Hope fine....Spring is here, weather is getting little bit better.  Hoping for good summer this year!  Kids are at home for two weeks Easter holiday!  Getting very busy with them...lots of cooking and indulging...;0)...OK coming to my recipe, Potato Gnocchi made last week..something new for kids to have also to challenge my cooking skills too...So what is Potato Gnocchi ? 

Gnocchi (pronounced "nyo-kee" and derived from the German word for "knuckle") are tasty little dumplings, one of Italy's oldest pastas dating back to the 12th century.  Gnocchi can be made from a variety of ingredients, including cheese gnocchi, but potato is the most common.  This recipe is very straightforward and simple, can be made with your choice of sauce.  We had with sun dried tomato and olive pasta sauce..Found recipe here


You will need for Gnocchi:-
  • 3 large baking potatoes
  • 1-2 cups unbleached white flour
  • salt to taste
  • dash paprika
  • dash grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
You will need for the sauce:-
  • 140 g sun-dried tomatoes in seasoned oil(used jar once)
  • few leaves of fresh besil
  • 8-10 olives(used jar once)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2-3 Garlic cloves..........Place all the ingredients in a food processor and make a fine paste.  Leave a side..
 Method:-
Boil the potatoes, peel and mash.  Now mix all the other ingredients with mashed potatoes and knead on a floured surface just untill dough is mixed and not sticky.  Let it rest for 12-15 minutes. Roll chunks of dough on floured board into logs about 1 inch thick. Cut into diagonal slices about 3/4 inch thick. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add gnocchi, After they rise to the surface, adjust heat and simmer for 10 minutes, uncovered. Drain well and cover with your favorite pasta sauce.  Garnish with Parmesan cheese and Enjoy!
