Gnocchi First attempt

 My sweet friend Marilyn gave me a recipe for Gnocchi. I have never made it before and I was inspired to give it a try.
 I ordered a little gnocchi board. You make the dough and roll it across the board and it makes some sweet little lines. Very pretty! I made a recipe of:
2 potatoes, cooked and grated.
2 cups of flour
2 eggs
a pinch of salt and pepper too
You roll the dough and cut into small pieces. Roll it over the board and throw into boiling water. They cook very quickly, 2-3 minutes.




 
 I was pleased as they were tender and delish!! I read that if you make them poorly, they are tough like little bullets! :(


 

 The rest of the recipe has onions, fresh spinach, garlic, seasoned tomatoes and chicken broth, pepper too. Oh and white beans. I did put them in, but after I took out my portion, as I don't like beans of any sort---except green beans! :) This recipe was DELCIOUS!!!!!! Earl and I really enjoyed and I will share with Dad tomorrow. YUM! Thanks Marilyn!
