GNOCCHI (nokh' kee) DOKEY (SALLYE)
Boil on medium high heat for about 25 minutes or until potatoes are done. Test with a bamboo skewer, it should slide easily all the way through the thickest part of the potato.
RESERVE POTATO WATER, YOU WILL USE LATER.
Make a depression(well) in flour
Turn dough out onto cutting board that has been lightly dusted with flour.
Dust your hands with flour and begin to work the dough into ropes about 1/2" round.
Using a fork, gently press down on each piece to score.
(This will give more surface for sauce to adhere to the noodles).
Drop the cut pieces of dough into boiling water a few at a time, stirring gently and continuously with a wooden spoon to keep them from sticking together.
Cook in the boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes until they float to the top.
