    This recipe is from Clean Eating magazine. I just love gnocchi, and love sweet potatoes, so this has to be a winning combo!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400°F Use a fork to poke holes in all potatoes. Bake on a cookie sheet, lined with foil, for 45 minutes. Remove potatoes from oven, let cool, remove skins and slice. Add potato slices to a food processor fitted with a standard blade and purée for 3 minutes or until smooth.
    2. 2
      To make gnocchi, put potato purée in a large bowl and mix in 2 cups flour, a 1/4 cup at a time (you will get a very sticky consistency). Dust hands with a bit of flour and form purée into teaspoon-sized oval-shaped balls. You will periodically need to dust your hands with more flour while making balls. Once all balls are made (you will have 90 to 100), take a fork and, pressing lightly, make indentations around the circumference of the balls, being careful not to flatten them. Dust 2 plates or a cookie sheet with flour and place gnocchi on them to air-dry so they will not be quite as fragile.
    3. 3
      While gnocchi are drying, fill a large stockpot with water and bring to a boil over medium-high. Once dry, add gnocchi to stockpot in small batches of about 10 to 15. When they float to the surface, after about 3 minutes, remove gnocchi with a slotted spoon.
    4. 4
      To make sauce, heat a medium saucepot over medium-high. Let heat for 1 minute, then mist with cooking spray. Add onion, celery and carrots and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Add turkey and stir, breaking meat up into pieces with a spoon or spatula as it cooks, about 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Once turkey is cooked, add remaining 2 tbsp flour. Whisk in milk and stir until thickened.
    6. 6
      Pour in tomatoes, tomato paste and 1/2 cup water. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir. Add Italian seasoning and basil. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and cook for another 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      To serve, place 1 cup gnocchi in a bowl and top with 1 cup sauce. Garnish with additional basil, if desired.
