I had never made gnocchi ever and it way better than I thought it would be considering it's mostly just potato but, topped with marinara it is some good stuff.
3 Russet potatoes peeled
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup flour
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
Peel potatoes and cut into small pieces. Boil potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain water and mash the potatoes. Add salt, flour and ricotta. On a floured surface knead dough until it comes together. Divide dough into 6 equal pieces and roll into long ropes. Use the back of a fork to imprint the design all the way down the rope then cut into 3/4 inch thick pieces. Shake off excess flour and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
In a pot bring water to boil. Add 1/3 of the gnocchi to the boiling water and when they float to the surface they are done. About 30 seconds. Remove with slotted spoon and serve with homemade marinara sauce and Parmesan.
