Day after Thanksgiving Gnocchi

Megan Ostler, Michelle Alley

TOTAL TIME:30 min

I was always very intimidated to make gnocchi—it just sounded like something that was going to be really difficult. But it’s actually sooo easy!! I wish I’d started making it so much sooner. With only three ingredients, it’s an incredibly quick meal. Now, every time I cook mashed potatoes, I make sure that I have enough for leftovers. Then, the next day, I use what’s left to create this quick-’n-easy meal for my family!

          Directions
          1. Fill a large pot with water, then bring it to a boil.
          2. While water is heating up, mix together all the ingredients in a medium bowl.
          3. Knead for about 5 minutes, or until it has a doughy texture.
          4. On a floured surface, divide the dough into three balls.
          5. Using your hand, roll out each ball into a long rope.
          6. If you have a gnocchi roller, use it to roll out the dough. Alternatively, you can use the prongs of a fork to make small indentations.
          7. Cut each gnocchi about 1 inch long.
          8. Once the water is boiling, add a third of the gnocchis to it.
          9. They’ll sink to the bottom, then rise to the top.
          10. Once they’re at the top, cook for an additional 3 minutes.
          11. Skim them off of the top, then set them aside.
          12. Cook the remaining batches of gnocchi.
          13. Serve with your favorite sauce—marinara’s a great one!
