Potato Gnocchi stuffed with Spinach Ricotta Filling- Recipe 

Potato Gnocchi

  • 1 large Russet or Yukon Gold potato 
  • ¾ - 1  cup or 120g of all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 egg
  • Extra flour for dusting

Method for Potato Gnocchi:

  1. Boil potatoes with skin on in a large pot with just enough water to cover the potato. Cook for 30 minutes or until tender (test with a fork). Drain well and let cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Carefully (potato will still be hot!) peel the cooled potato using a small paring knife or fingers.
  3. Using a potato masher, ricer or cheese grater, mash the slightly cooled potatoes into a fine paste. You should have no large lumps. Transfer to a clean work surface or use a large bowl.
  4. Add flour on top of the potatoes on your work surface or bowl and make a well using your fingers in the centre. Add the egg to the centre of the well and beat the egg. Using your fingers, start to incorporate the flour into the potato and egg. 
  5. Knead the dough until it forms a soft and pillowy dough, adding dusting flour if too sticky. Cut into 2 portions to make this step more manageable.  roll each portion into a log about 1” thick then cut the log into 1 ½ ” pieces.
  6. For plain gnocchi, gently press each 1 ½” portion onto the back of a fork and roll off the fork to get indentations. 
  7. Place freshly shaped gnocchi onto a floured baking sheet, making sure to sprinkle with flour so they don't stick.
  8. Boil until the gnocchi starts to float then serve with your favourite sauce or pan fry!

Spinach Ricotta filling

  • 1 cup or 240g of ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup or 120g of grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup or 120g of grated mozzarella cheese
  • 5 or 500g cups of fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Olive oil for sautéing + Extra Olive oil to serve
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Method for stuffing potato gnocchi:

  1. Sauté spinach with garlic until wilted and let cool for 10 minutes. 
  2. Let the spinach cool and mix it in a bowl with the cheeses and egg.
  3. Place each 1.5” piece of gnocchi into your hand and, using your thumb, flatten into a circle, about 2 inches wide.
  4. Place ½ teaspoon of the filling into the centre of the dough and begin to fold the dough shut, encasing the filling. Pinch the seam to seal.
  5. Continue this process with the rest of the dough, placing each piece onto a generously floured baking sheet.
  6. Boil your gnocchi in a large pot of salted water until the gnocchi floats to the top (2-3 minutes). Serve with your favourite sauce or pan fry.

Easy Aglio e Olio Dressing:

  • ½ cup or 100ml of olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes, to taste
  • Chopped parsley, to serve

Instructions for serving sauce:

  2. Remove from heat and stir in red pepper flakes. 
  3. Spoon over gnocchi and serve with chopped parsley.
