My very first time to make this Simple Home-made Gnocchi (Italian Dumplings),I think I could still improved it next time specially the shape. I had difficulty in shaping the fork in each dough. My mashed potato is too soft, that's why I added more flour into it. For the first timer, the taste is simply good!
For the gnocchi:
1 big potato
some all purpose flour
For the sauce:
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
some fresh basil leaves, chopped
salt and peppert
Cook the potatoes until soft, drain, let cool, and mash the potato. Knead the mash potato with egg, flour, salt, and a drop of olive oil until the mixture is well mixed. Take a handful of dough and roll into strips. Cut cross-wise into bite size.
Heat a drop of olive oil, add tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Add little hot water, let it boil until cook. Blend the sauce in the blender, then bring back to boil until thicken.
Bring salted water to a boil. Add gnocchi, cook until they rise to the surface. Drain the gnocchi, toss with the sauce for a minute.
Parmesan cheese can be added, if desired. Serve immediately.
