Gnocchi with Pesto

Laura Sharrad

Ingredients:

  • 1kg royal blue potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 250g 00 flour
  • Salt

Pesto:

  • 200g picked basil leaves
  • 80g pine nuts
  • 50g grated parmigiano reggiano
  • 250ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Sea salt flakes
  • Freshly cracked black pepper

Method:

  1. Add all your ingredients into either a small food processor or a jug with a barmaid and blitz until smooth, combined and almost creamy like in texture.
  2. For the Gnocchi, peel and quarter potatoes. Boil in salted water until tender then drain in a colander and allow potatoes to steam and dry slightly. Press potatoes through a fine drum sieve into a large bowl.
  3. Add flour and salt and mix gently to form a dough.
  4. Roll the dough into 2cm thick logs and cut into 2cm pieces.
  5. Roll each piece across on wooden ridged gnocchi board, or back of a fork.
  6. Cook your gnocchi in salted boiling water until they float, add to a fry pan with a ladle of cooking water and enough pesto to coat the gnocchi, toss to combine and serve with extra parmigiana cheese on top.
