Nana Polito’s gnocchi

Captured here so I don’t have to call my mom again if I lose this little scrap of paper.

  • 2lb potatoes
  • 1/2lb flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1oz butter
  • salt and pepper

boil potatoes, puree.

mix in the other stuff.

knead a bit then roll into finger-sized strands on  a floured counter.

cut into chunks maybe 2cm long.

use your thumb to press a radial divot into each one (seems to add surface area and make them hold sauce better)

dump a handful at a time in boiling water; fish them out when they float.
