Homemade Gnocchi

I know we’ve all been experimenting quite a bit in the kitchen lately. I’ve made no knead bread at least 7 times now and sent over 4 dozen chocolate chip cookies as care packages.

But my new project is this: HOMEMADE GNOCCHI.

Homemade Gnocchi

I know, it looks super daunting but it is unbelievably easy. It’s fool-proof and requires only 5 ingredients – potatoes, flour, ricotta, Parmesan and egg. THAT IS IT.

Homemade Gnocchi

The end result? Soft, pillow-y, light gnocchi that just melts. in. your. mouth. Pan-fry them and serve with a quick tomato sauce, IP bolognese, or simply some butter, garlic and sage. YOU DO YOU because it is all good.

Except, stay tuned. I have an awesome baked gnocchi recipe coming soon, smothered in marinara sauce, ground beef and all the cheese.

Print Recipe

1 hour1 hour 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium russet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 large egg
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Pierce potatoes with a fork; place potatoes onto prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until tender, about 1 hour. Let cool completely.
  3. Cut in half; scoop flesh into a medium bowl and mash. Transfer 1 1/2 cups to a large bowl; stir in flour, ricotta, Parmesan, egg, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  4. Working on a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 6 equal pieces. Roll each piece into an 18-inch long rope, about 1-inch in diameter, sprinkling with additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Using a sharp knife, cut each rope into 3/4-inch bite-size pieces; transfer to baking sheet.
  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; working in 3 batches, cook gnocchi until tender, stirring occasionally, about 4-6 minutes. Drain well and transfer to clean rimmed baking sheet.
