Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups Simply Potatoes Traditional Mashed Potatoes
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 24 ounces spicy marinara sauce
  • 4 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Add 2 cups of mashed potatoes to a pre heated oven for 15 minutes.
  2. Remove the potatoes and press them through a ricer. Place potatoes on a large cutting board.
  3. On top of the potatoes, add the eggs, and flour and start to combine ingredients until you are able to form a ball. Add more flour so your hands will not stick.
  4. Cut the dough into 4 pieces, and roll each of them into 1 inch logs. Cut the logs down to 1/2 inch pieces.
  5. Roll each piece on the tip of a fork to create ridges in the dough. This makes it easier for the sauce to stick to the dough.
  6. Add each piece to a medium sized sauce pan of boiling water. They will float to the top when they are done. Approximately 7 minutes.
  7. In another medium sized sauce pan pour in the marinara and let it simmer on low heat. When the potato gnocchi has floated to the top, drain the excess water with a strainer and add to the marinara. Gently stir before serving. Top with grated parmesan cheese.
