Fancy creating your own gnocchi from scratch? It's not as hard as you think! Follow this easy recipe - and land up with a delicious meal the family will love.
Optional shaping step: You can shape the gnocchi by holding a fork, placing the gnocchi against the tines of the fork and using your thumb to press the gnocchi in and down the length of the fork (the gnocchi should curl into a slight "C" shape).
To cook gnocchi, bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add gnocchi and cook until they rise to the surface (about 2 minutes). Remove with a slotted spoon and serve as desired - see serving suggestions below.
Gnocchi freeze well - this is a great option to have on hand for busy weeknights! Freeze on a tray in a single layer until solid (about 3 hours). Once frozen, transfer to an airtight container or resealable freezer bag and place back in the freezer. Cook straight from frozen - they will take 1-2 minutes longer to cook than fresh gnocchi.
