Homemade gnocchi with pesto & goats cheese

November 29, 2010

To make basic gnocchi

  • 800g of dutch cream potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • salt to taste

Cook the potatoes in salted water then mash until smooth. Mix through the egg and then gradually add in the flour until it forms a dough. Divide into three or four portions and role it out into a big long sausage. Cut the dough into 2cm pieces. You can squish them with a fork so they look pretty, if you choose!

Goats cheese pesto

  • 1 big bunch of basil
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 50g of shaved hard goats cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • 30g of pine nuts (toasted)

Pick the leaves of the basil, then throw them in a blender with the cheese, salt and pepper. Blend it all up and add the pine nuts.

Boil up some water and cook the gnocchi, then mix through the pesto.
