2 medium potatoes
2 cups all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
1. Place the potatoes in a pot. Cover with water. Bring the water to a boil and cook until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain the water. Peel and mash the potatoes.
2. Remove about 1 to 1/2 cup of the mashed potatoes and place in a bowl or on a clean counter. Add the flour egg and pinch of salt. Knead until the mixture forms a ball. Cover the dough and let rest on counter for 30 minutes. Divide the ball into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into long ropes on a floured surface. Cut into 1/2 inch slices. If desired, use the back of a fork and roll each piece of gnocchi off the tines, making groves.
