  1. Bake the potatoes in the oven at 190 degrees celsius if you wish you could put it on bed of rock salt. Bake until completely cooked.
  2. No need to peel all of it. Consistency: at the end doesn’t have to stick to your hands.
  3. Have ready extra flour in a bowl and for the counter. Take a piece of the mixture and start working on it forming  a long sausage. With a knife cut length wise pieces of about 1 cm. Put the pieces in the bowl with flour and coat them. Remove excess flour
  4. If you wish to give the stripy look to it you will need either the wood gnocchi utensil or a fork will do. Lightly press the gnocchi on the utensil and you will get the stripes on your gnocchi.
  5. Put the gnocchi in the pot and once they float to the surface count 30 seconds and remove them. I remove them gently with a spoon with wholes  to drain the water and to then put them in the sauce. I don’t recommend you make big gnocchi as they will be more delicate and more easy to break. I made mine with a very simple tomato sauce as I love tomatoes but you can do a cheese sauce or butter and sage or ragu’ sauce or even a fish sauce.

Buon Appetito!!!
