First time making home-made gnocchi. This was Delicious. My Tips would be to add about 2 Tbls of salt to give it the classic flavour and the Second to make these a bite size like you buy in the shops. I made mine quite large about 2-3 times bigger than this and had a different texture in the middle like a bit more doughy. But so good still, This has been choosen as my standard gnocchi recipe from now on. I made this in "Gnocchi Bake With Pancetta and Red Onion" Also a fantastic recipe TY Mermaid

These were outstanding! I haven't had gnocchis in a while and we had leftover potatoes from making potato skins. It worked perfectly. I only used about 1 3/4 cups of flour and boiled them for 7 minutes. DELICIOUS! I will be making these again and again.
