How to Make Gnocchi With Sundried Tomato Pesto

  • Boil or zap the potatoes in microwave until soft. Peel and mash making sure there are no lumps. Mix the ingredients into a smooth dough. Add little water if needed.
  • Take a couple of tbsps of the dough and roll into a cylinder of about 1/2 inch thick.
  • With a knife, cut the cylinder at 1/4-inch intervals.
  • Take each piece and lightly shape it into cylinders. Press the gnocchi with thumb into the tines of a fork, while making a dent in the back with the thumb at the same time.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add about 2 tbsp salt to it.
  • Put about a fourth of the gnocchi into the boiling water. It will sink first and rise as it cooks. Once the gnocchi has risen, remove it into a plate. Each batch will take about 2 minutes each.
  • Add some sundried pesto sauce or basil pesto and stir.
  • For sundried pesto sauce:
  • Place all ingredients other than olive oil into a food processor.
  • With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil.
  • Once it's granular but even paste, turn off the food processor. Check for salt.
  • Mix with gnocchi.
