I don't think this recipe is intended to replace real gnocchi, it's meant to be a GREAT short cut alternative! Hence the 5 star rating. If it was being compared to real gnocchi, I'd probably only give it a 4. I really was expecting to hate this recipe because I HATE instant mashed potatoes. You would never know there was anything instant with these gnocchi. On a whim I decided to serve Good Friday dinner, I was a little strapped for time and served these to my Italian husband and mother in law. My husband knew what was in them and said they were not as good as the real thing, but very very close! I didn't tell my mother in law, she had second helpings and liked them! I would use this again! It takes some time to prepare, but it saved time from peeling the potatoes, boiling, ricing, letting them cool so you can add eggs, etc. As others have mentioned add flour gradually. Dough should be soft not stiff. Too much flour makes tough gnocchi.
