Just for Christine and others that are wondering what to do with leftover mashed potatoes. here are some great ideas from the old country.
Gnocchi is a favorite in my house. There are recipes.. but the way I was taught was a couple of cups of leftover mashed potatoes, two large pinches of sea salt, a egg, and a couple cups of flour ... kneed the flour in a few handfuls at a time. until it forms
a nice dough . let it rest for ten minutes.
now you cut into four parts and roll each out into a snake roll.
now comes the really fun part :
with a fork cut into the snake about an half inch and pull in a rolling motion .. it take a bit to learn this so dont worry. it is something that comes with age the old gals would tell me lol
I put a cotton towel on a cookie sheet and place the pasta on the towel this way they wont stick together. I let them chill in the frig a bit while I get the water boiling.
My favorite way is to fry up some onions and garlic in butter ... oh man there is nothing like it .. a bit of heaven I tell ya.
ok here is some recipes here on AR:
