Potato Gnocchi

Ingredients for 8/10 persons

1,2 kg (2.5 lbs) patate
800 gr (28 oz. or 1.75 lbs) of flour 00
1 egg

Boil the potatoes and when are cooked take away their skin and pass them into a mashing potatoes ( don't use a cutter otherwise you can make a purèe but not gnocchi). Now if you like you can use a processor machine to create the dough adding the flour and an egg.
The dough must be tender and not hard so you can easyly work with your fingertips. Roll little strips and cut them in small cubes.
Use semolino flours on the bottom of the tray and keep them on the fridge and remember to boil them untill the puff up slightly in 3/4 minutes
