INGREDIENTS

300 g flour + flour for the work table

Here are the ingredients prepared for one of the best gnocchi recipes.

I boiled the potatoes in their skins until the fork entered them lightly, but without breaking during cooking, then I took them off the heat, took them out of the water and removed the peel while they were hot. This is very easy to take.

I mashed the potatoes like puree, but they can also be grated with a large grater. I mixed them with 1 small egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt and flour.

The dough obtained was rolled between the palms lined with flour, then I cut them. The rolls are 3 cm in diameter and I cut them into sizes of about 3 cm. I shaped them with a fork, then boiled them in water with 1 teaspoon of salt for about 5 minutes or until they rise to the surface. I took out the gnocchi and left them in a large strainer.

I prepared the sauce: I hardened the onion, and when it became glassy I added the tomato juice, sugar, crushed garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and basil. I simmered for about 5 minutes.

I chopped mozzarella into cubes of the right size.

In a heat-resistant bowl I put tomato sauce, gnocchi, mozzarella, a little dried oregano or dried basil, grated Parmesan, then I repeated the operation, but I kept a little tomato juice for topping.

I baked everything at 200 ° C until it au gratin (max 15 min).

I immediately ate these delicious gnocchi with tomato juice and mozzarella.

I hope you will try the recipe.

Eggplant Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce

Eggplant peeled and then cut into cubes as long as the nail we put it in a pan with a little water, a pinch of salt and cover with a lid to simmer. In about 5 minutes, stirring from time to time, it has changed color and is so soft that it can be easily crushed with a fork. Now turn off the flame and drain the eggplant from the water in which it was baked.

You can very well use the cooked eggplant core (on the embers, in the oven, on the stove) and drained well of the juice.

While the eggplant is boiling / simmering, separately in a saucepan mix the fresh tomato pulp cut into very small cubes with the tomato pulp with onion and basil and let it boil over a medium covered heat, the sauce should decrease.

When the eggplant is drained well (we help it by crushing the eggplant pulp in a strainer with a spoon) we turn it into an astron and crush it well with a fork. We add as much salt and flour as we need to get a dough that we can easily give the shape of a roll but without being too soft or too hard.

Form a roll and cut pieces of it, give each piece the shape of a sphere and then lightly crush it with your fingertip to form a small hole, with this shape the sauce settles better.

Throw these dumplings in a saucepan with boiling water, add a pinch of salt and with a spoon mix lightly on the bottom of the bowl so that the gnocchi does not stick. They will float a little and in a few minutes they will rise to the surface. At this point I am ready. But if you don't like al dente, you can let them boil over low heat. Under no circumstances should you imagine that they will have the same consistency as those in potatoes that are very fluffy, but will be similar to the flour dumplings that are put in paprika.

When the gnocchi are ready, the sauce is ready (or even faster). Recover boiled gnocchi with a perforated palette and throw them in the pan with the tomato sauce. Mix well and serve.

Whoever wants can press grated Parmesan or other cheese from those listed above.
