GNOCCHI (serves 4)
500g floury potatoes
100g fine flour
1 egg yolk
Add the flour and egg yolk to the cooled potatoes and season. Use salt and pepper - and add any of your flavourings at this stage. Form into small squares -we made around 40.
Bring a pan of water to the boil and drop the potato gnocchi into the pan. When they rise to the top, fish them out - this takes around a minute or so.
Serve with your favourite tomato sauce - today we have chopped up a few fresh tomatoes, fried lightly for five minutes in a small amount of oil, added garlic and basil and cooked for a further couple of minutes.
Top with your favourite cheese. Today we used 10g of Parmesan each - bringing our meal to around 350 calories. This gave us plenty of room for the all important chunk of crusty bread to mop up all that wonderful sauce.
REMEMBER: We all have a calorie allowance - do you know yours?
