    andrealeev's Note:

    This makes gnocchi sooo easy. Thank you Sandy. I married an Italian who loves this dish! I have also added parmesan cheese for something different. I freeze the gnocchi before boiling for easier handling as well as make double batches to save for later. They freeze very well.

    1. 1
      Place potato flakes in a medium-size bowl. Pour in boiling water; stir until blended. Let cool.
    2. 2
      Beat egg and stir in salt and pepper. Blend in enough flour to make fairly stiff dough. Turn dough out on a well floured board. Knead lightly.
    3. 3
      Divide dough in half (I do fourths for easier working). Shape each half into a long thin roll, the thickness of a breadstick. With a knife dipped in flour, cut into bite size pieces. For a more authentic shape, roll against a fork tine and pinch a bit.
    4. 4
      Place a few gnocchi in boiling water. As the gnocchi rise to the top of the pot, remove them with a slotted spoon. Repeat until all are cooked. Top with tomato sauce.
    5. 5
      These can be made ahead and frozen.

      This was very easy - great! I didn't bother to freeze them or pick them out of the water individually.

      These were good but did taste a little like instant potatoes. I made them in advance like the recipe stated and dusted them with flour, but they stuck together and I had to reroll them. Next time I'll lay them single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze them.

      Yummy! Thanks for the recipe. My husband went back for seconds even though he was full =) We had ours with basil pesto and cream.
