I love gnocchi. Decided to try making some. I found a bunch of different recipes, each claiming to be the "best" and "most authentic". Some used ricotta, some used eggs, others just potatoes and flour. I found this recipe in the comments section of some blog or other and didn't bookmark it -- the amounts were just super easy to remember. I roasted my potatoes instead of boiling to decrease the amount of liquid because they're not supposed to be super sticky, and then just put them through my baby food mill so they were very finely mashed. The techniques to add the little ridges on them were all different too; I chose not to add the ridges. They all disagreed about how to serve them too -- light sauce, no meat, marinara, with meatballs ... hahaha.
2 c mashed potato (about 3 medium russet potatoes)
2 c flour
Start a pot of water boiling. Mix all together. Divide into 4 equal pieces, then roll into logs. Cut into bite sized pieces.
Add the gnocchi to the pot of salted, boiling water and remove with a slotted spoon when they float to the top.
The dough was still fairly sticky, so I might go with 1 egg instead of two. I served them with marinara and italian sausage. hubby liked them okay, kiddo refused to try them that night but has asked me to make them again so she can try them. I loved them. They were all gone the next day. I give it 5 stars because I probably would serve them at a dinner party, but I'd have to make a bunch.
