Homemade Make Gnocchi Recipe

Making Gnocchi has been on my how to do list for a long time. For some reason I thought I could never find the time; but it was not as time consuming as I imagined. The Gnocchi recipe is not a lot different from any other pasta recipe. The main difference is the time involved to cook and mash the potatoes.

I served fried chicken with the Gnocchi’s and it worked out real well. During the time the chicken was cooking, it gave me plenty of time to prepare the Gnocchi recipe. I used a store bought pasta sauce with this Gnocchi recipe to save time. If you have a favorite store bought sauce go ahead and use it, or make your own. Either way making Gnocchi’s at home is a pretty simple process and well worth the effort. Give it a try! Enjoy

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
  • 3 medium size potatoes (1 cup mashed)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  1. Cook potatoes in salted water until tender. (Don’t overcook-you want them done, but still firm) mash the potatoes and let cool.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the mashed potatoes, egg, and flour; kneading to form a ball of dough.
  3. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for 20 minutes to a half an hour.
  4. On a floured surface cut and divide the dough into 4-6 equal pieces. Roll the dough with your hands forming rope like pieces about a ½ inch thick; then cut into ½ to 1 inch pieces to form the Gnocchi’s.
  5. To cook the Gnocchi’s use a large pot of lightly salted boiling water, drop the Gnocchi’s in the water and let cook until they float back to the top. (This will only take a few minutes)
  6. Serve hot with your choice of sauce
