My grandmother and her sister came to the United States from Italy when they were children. Not surprisingly, Italian meals with homemade pasta and tomato sauce made from ingredients from our gardens were often served at our large Sunday dinners. Gnocchi was among my favorites. Although there was no official recipe, Auntie showed me how she made Ricotta Gnocchi. After careful observation and practice, I was able to nail down a basic recipe for a comfort food that brings me warm memories.
How To Make Fresh Pasta Dough- Diane's notes (made on 2/17): do level 1 5x and fold in half each time. No need to continue folding dough in half past level 1. Feed back through on levels 2, 3, etc just 1x each. For fettuccini only go to level 5 on pasta maker before running it through cutter. Let dry for min 20min before cooking.
