Mirella: Your other reviewer must not be familiar with gnochhi or they would understand that the texture is what the cook is shooting for here. The sauce is where the real flavor comes from. Your gnocchi recipe was just like my grandmother, Italia, used to make. Thanks.
Where's the egg in this recipe? I followed this recipe exactly and ended up with a big mess! They didn't hold together in the boiling water and ended up looking like porridge. What a waste!
This recipe was easy and tasty! I was happy to find an egg-free version of this dish. Since this was my first time making pasta, I kneaded the flour into the potato 1/4 cup at a time until the dough was not sticky and easy to work with, so I did not run into any handling or cooking problems. I also modified the recipe to include 1 tsp. of sea salt, 1 tsp. of fresh ground pepper and 3 cloves of crushed garlic (mashed in with the potato). Delicious!
This recipe was great! Mine came out nice and firm, although it might have beed a good idea to let it sit for a bit before boiling. . .I just added a bit of parmesan/ romano to the potatoes, but they tasted subtly nice. . . I really dint realize that they would expand, i will make the pieces smaller next time. But I love these , will definitely make them again. . :D
The finish product is very good! Just note, the dough in the end was enough for 10-12 people. I ended up adding 2 cups of flour more to the dough. I did read the reviews prior to cooking and used small baking potatoes, but that was still too much. Maybe she meant 8 small new potatoes? Overall, very yummy!
I found this recipe better than the Gnocci I on this site. Maybe it is the lack of egg....maybe I used more flour this time around without thinking or maybe it was because I used leftover mashed potatoes. Who knows - but I know this will be the recipe I use for Gnocci in the future. Thanks!
This is my Northern Italian Grandmother's family recipe - to the letter!
The only thing our family does differently is to roll them in flour with our INDEX FINGER. Perhaps those that had trouble did so because of the fork (just a suggestion). Although it does take some getting used to rolling them.
These are real italian gnocchi like my grandmother or my aunt make them. I gave the recipe to one of my friends who's half italian like me and he said it's been the best gnocchi he's ever eaten. Thanks for sharing!
