- Place potato flakes in a medium-size bowl. Pour in boiling water; stir until blended. Let cool.
- Stir in egg, salt, and pepper. Blend in enough flour to make a fairly stiff dough. Turn dough out on a well floured board. Knead lightly.
- Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a long thin roll, the thickness of a breadstick. With a knife dipped in flour, cut into bite-size pieces.
- Place a few gnocchi in boiling water. As the gnocchi rise to the top of the pot, remove them with a slotted spoon. Repeat until all are cooked.
I added homemade pesto sauce over top of them and my family could not get enough! I doubled the recipe so there was plenty for lunch today.
Homemade Pesto Sauce
3 cups fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 cups chopped raw pine nuts
4 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup olive oil
salt and pepper
I put everything in my Vita Mix and blended until it was smooth but a food processor would work perfect also.
