Ingredients

2 medium potatoes (peeled)

2 cips all-purpose flour

1 egg, slightly beaten

Pinch of salt

Method

  1. Place your peeled potatoes into a medium saucepan, then bring the water to a slow boil. After 15 minutes the potatoes should be tender, then drain the water and mash them.
  2. Take away 1 cup of the mashed potatoes, and transfer into a medium sized bowl. Add the flour, egg, and salt before kneading the mixture well. Divide into 4 equal portions, then roll into long snakes on a flat surface.
  3. Use the back of your fork to make small indentations, and roll each piece into a small gnocchi roll.
  4. Drop them into a large pot of boiled water (with a pinch of salt), and cook until the gnocchi float to the top. Drain, then serve with your favourite pasta sauce.
