The Gnocchi Tutorial

Details to come...but first, some photos from the evening.

Quick recipe:

2.5 lb potatoes (cooked, cooled, riced -- finished weight.  You'll need about 5 lbs potatoes to start.)
3 eggs
1.5 - 2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
Additional flour as necessary for rolling

 Cooked, riced, cooled potatoes -- 2.5 lb finished weight

Idaho russets, baked until soft, cooled slightly, halved, scooped out.
(Drizzle the leftover skins with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then baked at
350°F for about 20 minutes -- better than potato chips!)
