Instructions:

1. Step Cooking the potatoes: wash the potatoes thoroughly and cook them skin side down in boiling salted water until completely soft. This will usually take about 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes.
2. Step Preparing the potatoes: once the potatoes are cooked, drain them and leave them to cool slightly. Then peel and mash while still warm. It is important to mash the potatoes while they are still warm, as this will give a smoother paste.
3. Step Add the ingredients: sprinkle the salt on the mashed potatoes, add the egg and gradually add the flour. Start with a small amount of flour and add more as needed, as too much flour will make the gnocchi tough. Knead the meat well to make a uniform and smooth dough. If the dough is too wet and sticks, add a little more flour. If you wish, you can add BAM garlic or onion powder to taste at this point for extra flavour.
4. Step To shape the gnocchi: On a floured surface, divide the dough into several portions and shape each into a roll. Cut the rolls into pieces about 2 cm long. Each piece can be further shaped with a fork or a special gnocchi roller to obtain the characteristic depressions that will better hold the sauce.
5. Step To cook the gnocchi: Bring water to the boil in a large pot and season with salt. Cook the gnocchi in several batches so that they do not stick together during cooking. When the gnocchi float to the surface, they are cooked. This will usually take about 1-2 minutes. Carefully remove them from the water with a skimmer and drain.
6. Step Serving: serve the homemade gnocchi immediately, with the sauce of your choice. They go well with tomato sauce, pesto or simply with melted butter and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
