Sweet Potato Gnocchi
I thought I would be clever and use my pasta machine to help make this. I pulled out my 15 year old machine (I'm guessing it's about 15 years old because my oldest child is 13 and who has time to make pasta when you have kids?)and was thrilled to find that it still works! Sadly, it didn't save me any time. It took me over an hour to make this delicious gnocchi. I don't have a scale so I measured out 2 cups of cooked sweet potato. I put all of the ingredients in the pasta machine and quickly discovered there wasn't nearly enough flour. I only had 1 cup of white flour, so the rest was whole wheat flour. I probably added about 3/4 cup more than the recipe required, and it could have used a bit more. It was difficult to get the dough to extrude because it was so sticky, but I persevered. Here's the good news: My family LOVED it! My 13 year old announced that she wouldn't be eating it, but agreed to taste it. That turned into a full portion. My 4-1/2 year old does not like sweet potatoes; he doesn't like much. He didn't even want to try it, though he helped me to make it. I finally prevailed and he tried one, and he proceeded to eat all that I had put on his plate. He said, "Hey, this is good!" In summary, this is a delicious recipe and if I could order it pre-made, I would eat it all the time. Since it took SO long to make it myself, and I really don't enjoy being in the kitchen, my rate of consumption will be much lower. If I'm lucky, someone else will make it the next time.
