- Boil the potatoes and mash them when they are still hot.
- Put them aside and let them cool off
- In a large bowl beat the egg, add the potatoes, the flour and the salt.
- \Mix very well until you have a firm ball of dough. If the dough is still soft, add more flour until you have a firm consistency.

- With the Nonna Knife, cut a piece of dough, roll it into a strip about 1/2" tick and cut it into pieces about 3/4" long.
- Take each piece of dough put it on a Gnocchi board, if you would like some texture, and with the tip of two of your fingers, roll the dough toward you.
- Make all your Gnocchi, boil them in salted water and serve them with your preferred sauce.
PS: If you do not have a Gnocchi board, to create texture you can use the back of a fork or the back of a cheese grater!
