Nanna's Gnocchi

"My nanna was from Italy, I loved it when she made gnocchi. It is a very time consuming process, but well worth the effort! The recipe can be varied with the addition of other ingredients (spinach, pumpkin, mushroom, herbs...) just let your imagination run wild! Serve with any sauce that tickles your fancy & lots of parmesan!!!"

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is 1 kg old potato? I understand the cooked (dry heat not boiled) and mashed.

    I added about half a cup extra of flour and yes it was sticky but as long as you handle it with extra flour to prevent sticking, its all good! Otherwise tender and delicious gnocchi!
