Buca di Beppo Gnocchi al Telefono Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Puncture potatoes on top and sides for ventilation. Bake the potatoes for about an hour until they are tender.
  2. Scrape the potatoes out of their skins and put them through a ricer or use a fork to mash and fluff them.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the potatoes with the eggs, flour and salt. Mix the concoction until it is a soft doughy ball.
  4. Roll strips of dough about 3/4 inches in diameter on a flour-covered work area. Do not press down firmly while rolling. Lightly push indentations into each gnocchi.
  5. In a shallow saucepan, bring 6 quarts of water to a boil. Place the gnocchi, a few at a time, into the water. Remove them as soon as they rise to the surface.
  6. Pour heated cream and marinara sauce over dish and sprinkle cheese cubes on top.[3] [5] [4]

  • Gnocchi can be frozen for up to a month after creation by using a freezer bag. This is handy for those seeking to make a large amount of gnocchi at once and serve the dish multiple times over a number of weeks.
  • The indentations in gnocchi makes it easier for the dumplings to catch more sauce, providing a richer flavor with each bite.
  • If you are feeling ambitious and would like to make your own tomato cream sauce for your gnocchi, try the following recipe. In a medium saucepan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 medium chopped onion and cook until translucent. Add two 28-oz cans ground, peeled tomatoes and 2 cloves of garlic, minced. Simmer for 30 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, 2 teaspoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of salt. Simmer for an additional 20 minutes and serve.
