Stove Top

Ingredients

1 c
dry potato flakes
1 c
boiling water
1
egg, beaten
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
ground pepper
1 1/2 c
-purpose flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place potato flakes in a medium-size bowl. Pour in boiling water; stir until blended. Let cool.

Stir in egg, salt, and pepper. Blend in enough flour to make a fairly stiff dough. Turn dough out on a well floured board. Knead lightly.

Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a long thin roll, the thickness of a breadstick. With a knife dipped in flour, cut into bite-size pieces.

Place a few gnocchi in boiling water. As the gnocchi rise to the top of the pot, remove them with a slotted spoon. Repeat until all are cooked.

saute with your favorite herbs, butter, sauce or just by themselves...
