Gnocchi Receipe

My dad use to own a fresh made pasta store in Uruguay, and us kids would make this pasta together:)

Tomatoe Sauce:

6-8 tomatoes
1/2 red onion
1 tsp sage leaves ,chopped
1 tblspn olive oil
pinch of salt and cayenne pepper ( or none at all, its up to your taste)

In a frying pan add he olive oil, chop the onions, sage and cilantro place in frying panfry under low heat, until the onions are cooked.Chop into small pieces the tomatoes and put into the frying pan. cook under low heat, while the gnocchi's are boiling.


1 lb. white potatoes, peeled and quartered
Sea salt, to taste1
1/4 cups white flour
Sage leaves for garnish

Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water for 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender.Stir in a generous amount of sea salt, drain, and mash until smooth. Transfer to a bowl.Sprinkle flour into the bowl with one hand while kneading into the potatoes with the other hand.Continue until all the flour is worked in and the dough is smooth. This will take a few minutes (the dough will be sticky at first). Divide into 3 pieces.Form each piece into a 1- to 2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1-inch-long pieces and roll against a fork. Repeat with the remaining dough.Drop each gnocchi into heavily salted, boiling water. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until rising to the surface.Remove from the water, drain well, and transfer to a warm plate.Toss with the Tomatoe Sauce and garnish with the sage leaves. Makes 6 to 8 servings
