Easy way to make a traditional Italian dumpling. It goes smoothly with the Parmesan Sauce.
My grandmother's traditional recipe for a meal with family and friends.
Preheat oven at 210 °C
Wrap 2 kg of unwashed starchy potatoes in aluminum foil
Bake the potatoes for 1h until tender at 210 °C
Peel the potatoes
Sift the potatoes into a large bowl
Separate 4 egg yolks from the whites in a bowl
Make a well in the middle of the potatoes and place the egg yolks
Sift 300 g of all-purpose flour over the potatoes
Add 1 tsp of salt and ½ tsp of black pepper powder. Mix until uniform
Add 150 g of grated parmesan cheese and mix to combine
Transfer to a clean surface and knead to obtain a homogeneous and smooth dough
Cut small pieces of dough to form 2 cm rolls. Cut them into 2 cm pieces
Bring water to a simmer in a medium pot and add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
Add 1 tsp of salt and cook the gnocchi until they float. The parmesan gnocchi is ready
Enjoy it with your favorite sauce!
