HOW TO MAKE GNOCCHI

Our home made GNOCCHI was simple to make - after our first attempt, we wondered why we had never made it before! Why not have a go at this over the weekend?
GNOCCHI (serves 2-4)
500g floury potatoes
100g fine flour
1 egg yolk
400g tin chopped tomatoes
60g mozzarella (or add your fav cheese or meat etc)
basil
garlic
olive oil
Peel 500g of floury type potatoes (such as King Edward) and boiled until very soft. Drain and let all the moisture come out of them, as that's an important step. We drained and let them steam in the pan then mashed until very very fine. Leave to cool.

As the potato cooled, we made a simple TOMATO SAUCE using a 400g tin of tomatoes, some chopped garlic and a handful of basil. Fy the garlic in a little olive oil, add the can of tomatoes and basil then cook until thickened (about 8 minutes should be enough). This should give enough sauce for up to 4 portions.
****
Back to making the gnocchi - take the cold mashed potatoes and add an egg yolk plus 100g of very fine flour (one used for bread making or pasta). Mix together to form a dough. Roll out some sausage shapes, and cut into small pieces. Mark each piece with the back of a fork. (There are plenty of websites out there that give step by step instructions for making gnocchi and are useful if you are unsure).  
Just drop into salted boiling water until they rise to the surface (about 2 minutes) then add to the tomato sauce.

Gnocchi is surprisingly low in calories. This recipe made 35 large pieces - estimated at around 1200 calories for all of them. If you divide the mixture into four portions, this is a low calorie meal.
