Potato Gnocchi


  • 4 cups mashed potatoes (without added milk and butter)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 quarts water
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, flour and salt. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, yolk and olive oil; add to potato mixture. Turn onto a heavily floured surface; knead for 3-5 minutes or until smooth. Divide into fourths. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 3/4-in.-thick rope; cut into 1-in. pieces.
  • 2. In a Dutch oven, bring water to a boil. Cook gnocchi in batches for 45-60 seconds or until they rise to the surface. Remove with a strainer. Serve spaghetti sauce over gnocchi; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

    Holy gnocchi!!! This made so many. Next time I will make them a bit smaller. I was in a hurry and didn't cut them small enough. As with anything made the first time, there are always improvements that one can make. I did add rosemary, oregano and basil to the recipe because I wanted that herb flavor!!!! Man, it was great. Light and fluffy and yummy. My husband wants them again. Oh, another thing I did was to boil them in a quart of chicken stock and two quarts of water. That helped to infuse flavor as well.

    Question: How do I save my gnocchi after making? Can I freeze it? How long will it last? Do I cook it before or after saving? Thank you .
