01 - Boil the Potatoes in their skins, without their skins or chopped.
02 - After about 25 minutes turn the heat off and tip them into a colander to drain.
03 - While still hot peel off the skin.
04 - Pass the Potatoes through a potato ricer.
05- Let the mash cool slightly, sprinkle over the Flour, add 2 generous pinches of Salt, pour in the Egg. 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.
06 - Sprinkle the surface with Flour. Slice a fist-sized piece from the Dough ball and roll out into lengths that are about 3cm / 1.1in thick.
07 - Use a knife to cut off 2cm / 0.8in pieces off the roll.
08 - You can either leave the Gnocchi smooth or give the classic gnocchi-shape by pressing the Gnocchi against the prong of a fork and rolling it off.
09 - Place the Gnocchi onto a tray, leaving a space between each piece to prevent them from sticking together.
10 - Boil some water in large and deep pan. Add some Salt.
11 - 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 inside the saucepan containing the sauce of your liking and gently stir to mix. Serve immediately.
- The size of the Gnocchi can vary as desired.
- You can leave them as they are, even without the lines.
- Sprinkle some Flour on and put them in the frige for 24 hours. Remember, Gnocchi contain Eggs, so the sooner you eat them, the better.
