Ingredients:

For the Gnocchi: 3 Medium Sweet Potatoes 4 cups all purpose flour 1 tsp. salt

Instructions:

For the Gnocchi: 1. Steam, bake, or boil the sweet potatoes whole until fork tender (about 30-45 min.) 2. Once cooled, remove the skin and mash sweet potatoes until very fine, mixing in the salt. 3. Put the flour down on a counter top and then the sweet potato mash and knead until a dough forms. Shape dough into a ball. 4. Cut dough ball into 8 pieces. 5. Roll each piece of dough into a sausage about 1 inch thick. 6. Cut the sausage roll into 1 inch pieces. 7. Roll each piece on a fork to create traditional gnocchi design. 8. Put gnocchi into boiling water and boil until floating. 9. Remove the gnocchi from the water and put into a preheated pan lightly coated with olive oil. 10. Add the sauce and a splash of the gnocchi cooking water. and 2 bunches of steamed asparagus and fresh parsley if desired.

*sauce recipe yields enough sauce for half the gnocchi. I recommend putting the other half of the gnocchi on a parchment lined sheet pan in the freezer until frozen and then transferring to a bag or container to store in the freezer. Sauce recipe with half the gnocchi recipe serves about 6 people*
