Italian Gnocchi

Admin :: Edit

Country of the Food: Italy | Email to Author               Posted on 20 April 2003 @ 09:56:23

4 med Boiling potatoes (about 2 lb) - salted water
1 Egg yolk; lightly beaten
1 Cup flour
Additional flour to knead


1 tb Butter
1 Clove garlic; very finely -minced
1 c Heavy cream
4 oz Gorgonzola
1/4 c Toasted walnuts; chopped

Take 4 medium boiling potatoes (about 2 lbs). Boil in salted water until tender. Drain and peel. Rice the potatoes as soon as you peel them(while still warm). Leave them to cool right down, fluff lightly with a fork once in a while to help the cooling off and to let all the air escape. Then proceed with the mixing. (You will find that with this method they are easy to mix as all the air has escaped. )

Mix in 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten, and about a cup of flour.

When well blended, turn onto a floured board and knead in flour (may take as much as another cup, probably more like 1/2 cup) until soft and pliable but not too sticky. Cut in 4 pieces and roll each into a rope about as thick as your thumb. Cut into 1" lengths. Hold a fork, tines down, on the board with the curved side away from you. Roll each piece against the tines to make the little indentations about 1/2 way round and curve slightly. Place on a floured baking sheet as you do them. Either cook right away or keep a few hours, uncovered, in the fridge.

Make Sauce: Melt 1 tbsp butter in a medium pan. Add 1 clove garlic, very finely minced. Stir a couple of times and add 1 cup heavy cream. Cook, stirring constantly, until reduced to about 3/4 cup. Add 4 oz Gorgonzola and stir until melted.

Now drop the gnocchi into boiling salted water and cook until they just rise to the top, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove to a heated platter with a slotted spoon or skimmer as they come up. Pour the sauce over them and sprinkle with 1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts and serve at once.
