The first time I had gnocchi was at a Thanksgiving feast at my 1st Grandmother In Law's house. She was a feisty little Italian lady (aren't we all!). Her name was Angie Marz (nee Ventimiglia) - she was my son's Great Grandmother.

Here are the ingredients to make gnocchi:
2 large russet potatoes
1-1 1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
To begin with, bake your potatoes in the oven at 375 degrees for 1 hour or until soft. Let them cool and then scoop out the potato. Be sure not to include the skin in the potato pulp. Take a fork and mash the potato - get rid of the chunks. If you have a potato ricer, that would be a perfect tool to use.
When the potato is mashed, add the flour, egg, salt and olive oil.
Knead the ingredients until it forms a dough.
Take a small chunk of the dough and roll it out, like a long snake. Cut the dough into 1/2 inch pieces and place on a floured surface.
I put fresh pesto on the gnocchi. It was FABULOUS!
