Home Made Gnocchi


An easy to make home style gnocchi with a secret ingredient

Prep time:30 mins

Cook time:5 mins

Serves: 4


  • 1 cup (dry powder) Edgell Instant Mash
  • 1 ½ cups boiling water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • Leggo's Pasta Sauce of your choice, heated
  • Parmesan cheese for serving


Step 1

Place Edgell Instant Mash in a large bowl. Carefully add boiling water and mix with a fork until it resembles mashed potato. Add egg yolk and stir well.

Step 2

Add plain flour; mix until all the flour is incorporated and the mixture is thick. Sprinkle a little extra plain flour on the bench. Take ½ cup of the potato mixture and roll into a long sausage shape. Cut into 2cm pieces and place onto a floured tray. Continue with remaining mixture.

Step 3

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Carefully place the gnocchi pieces in the water and cook for 5 minutes or until they float to the surface.

Step 4

Remove gnocchi with a slotted spoon. Serve with a hot pasta sauce of your choice and sprinkle with a little grated parmesan cheese.

Tasty Tip!

We used Leggo’s Roasted Tomato & Bacon Stir Through Sauce. Alternatively, any of the Leggo's Pasta Sauce Range would go well with gnocchi.
