I grew up making gnocchi with my Italian grandmother and she would substitute instant potatoes sometimes. I never knew a good ratio though so I was so glad when I found this because with real potatoes is a lot of work when you have 2 year old twins. I will definitely be making this again. I didn't need as much flour as the recipe called for. It does get very sticky but that is how it should be. After you mix it all together into a dough, if you put it on a floured cookie sheet in the fridge for at least 15 minutes, it will make it a ton easier to work with. It will get stickier as it warms though. Also, if you roll them 1/2" thick, they will be less dumpling like as some people stated. I found this recipe to be extremely good and will definitely be making them again!
