  1. Combine all ingredients except for flour and mix well. Make a well in the center of the mixture and add flour. Fold in flour gently and with the least amount of strokes possible, in order not to over-mix.

  2. Cut the dough into 12 portions and set aside.

  3. On a floured surface, roll each portion of dough out into a 1/2 wide tube.

  4. Cut 1 inch pieces, and give each gnocchi a pinch before storing on a cookie sheet that has been dusted with flour.

  5. Cook in boiling salted water for 6-8 minutes or until cooked through.

  6. Serve with your favorite sauce for an entrée or side dish. Serves 6 as an entrée or 12 as a side
