Last Thursday, for my supper club, I made gnocchi for 21 people! You need lots of gnocchi for 21 people….
Here’s my grandma’s recipe for 6 people:
500gr of red potatoes
100gr of flour
100gr semola (semolina)
50gr parmesan cheese
2 chopped sage leaves
Peel the potatoes and boil them in salty water. When they are cooked, drain and crush them with a fork. Add the flour, semola, parmesan cheese and salt. Work the dough with your hand until it becomes a round smooth ball. Divide it into several rolls and cut each roll to make little gnocchi, 1cm in length.
Cook them in boiling, salted water for only 2 mins.
Flavour your gnocchi with your favourite sauce: pesto, ragú, tomato sauce, butter and cheese etc.
My favourite sauce? Melted gorgonzola cheese, cream and sage….yummy!
