Handmade Gnocchi

Makes: 4 servings

Description: I was a little scared to make my own gnocchi but I had a friend who was trained in Europe come over and teach me. It turned out light, fluffy, and delicious!

2 lbs  Potatoes
2  Egg Yolks
2 cups  Parmesan Cheese
3  Garlic Cloves
2 tablespoons  Sugar
To Taste  Extra Vigin Olive Oil
1 Cup  Fresh Basil

Instructions: 1 - in a sauce pan place olive oil with garlic clove and let saute for a few seconds
2 - place the tomatoes with 2 tablespoons of sugar and chopped basil in, cook until sauce gets thicker over low heat
3 - Adjust with salt, pepper, and olive oil and let simmer

On to your Gnocchi!
1 - Cook potatoes in microwave on baked potato setting - do not use your oven. You want to use the microwave to get as much moisture out of the potatoes as possible.
2 - Peel and mash while still warm
3 - Incorporate the egg yolks first, then flour and parmesan cheese. Adjust with salt and pepper (I like lots of pepper)
4 - Kneed the mixture until it has a dough-like consistency
5 - Gently roll long tube of this dough and cut 1/2 inch size gnocchi
6 - Boil in a salty water until they float to the top (should be less than 5 minutes)
7 - Strain and mix in with your tomato sauce

Add parmesan cheese and basil on top!
