Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 2 - Fresh Egg
  • 110 g Plain Flour
  • 0 - Plain Flour
    (To coat Gnocchi)
  • 110 g SuperValu Parmesan Cheese Shavings
    (Grated)
  • 600 g SuperValu Potatoes
    (Peeled)
Herb Butter
  • 110 g SuperValu Butter
    at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp SuperValu Dried Mixed Herbs
  • 2 cloves SuperValu Garlic
    finely diced
  • 1 - SuperValu Shallots
    finely diced

Method

  • First, make your herb butter. Combine the ingredients together in a bowl then turn out on to the centre of some parchment paper.
  • Fold over and roll into a cylinder shape, then seal the ends by twisting the paper.
  • Transfer to the fridge until cold. Cut into ½ cm discs when ready to serve.
  • While your herb butter is chilling, start on the gnocchi. First, chop the potatoes into smaller chunks, allow to come to the boil, and cook until tender.
  • Once tender, mash the potatoes until really smooth and allow to cool down slightly.
  • Add in the cheese and the egg yolks and season well with salt and pepper.
  • Add in the plain flour at this stage and mix well.
  • You need to judge the consistency at this stage. You may need to add a little more flour; basically, the potato dough needs to be rolled out onto a work surface, so if it is still a little sticky at this stage, you will need to add some additional flour.
  • If you are worried, take a little ball and drop it in boiling water. If it breaks up, you need to add a little more flour.
  • Divide the dough into pieces and roll into long tubular shapes. Cut with a sharp knife into pieces about one inch long or even a little less, and then roll these pieces into oblong shapes and chill for a few minutes (overnight is fine too).
  • To cook the gnocchi, bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add a teaspoon of oil before dropping the gnocchi into the saucepan in batches.
  • When the gnocchi are cooked, they will rise to the top of the saucepan.
