  • Ingredients
  • Recipe
  • Asterix Potato1 kg
  • Wheat flour1 cup
  • Melted butter25 g
  • Whole egg1 unit(s)
  • Gem1 unit(s)
  • Salt1 teaspoon
  • TOMATO SAUCE - extra virgin olive oil to taste
  • Chopped Onion1 unit(s)
  • Crushed garlic cloves3 unit(s)
  • Chopped celery stalk1 unit(s)
  • Peeled Tomato250 g
  • Water150 ml
  • Salt1 teaspoon
  • Sugar1/2 teaspoon
  • Basil leaves to taste
  1. Cook the potatoes until they soften (I put it on pressure for 10 min after it gets pressure). Wait for it to cool down a little (not completely), until you can move it. Mash with a potato masher. Place in a bowl or deep bowl, mix the salt, flour, egg, yolk and melted butter and knead until it forms a dough (ATTENTION: the dough is even softer, if it is too soft, add a little more flour , but be careful because the secret is more potato than flour. To check if it's done, wash your hands and take a little piece of the dough and roll it with both hands and feel if it's not sticking.)
  2. Sprinkle flour on a smooth surface, place the dough on top and cut into pieces. Make worms with each piece and cut the gnocchi to a width of approximately 1.5 cm. Put enough water in a pan to boil, add a handful of salt and place the gnocchi balls little by little. When they rise to the surface, remove with a slotted spoon and place on a platter. Add a drizzle of olive oil on top so the balls don't stick.
  3. For the sauce: Heat 4 tablespoons of oil and sauté the onion for 3 min. Add the garlic and leave for 1 min. Add the celery and stir for another 1 minute. Put the peeled tomato, stir, loosening the tomatoes a little. Season with salt to taste, add a pinch of sugar (to remove the acidity of the tomato), the water and lower the heat. With the lid on, let the sauce simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and leave a little longer for the water to dry and the sauce to thicken. Add the chopped basil, taste and adjust the salt.
  4. Place the hot sauce over the gnocchi (The ideal is to prepare the sauce first and heat it up well before putting it on). Top with freshly grated Parmesan and enjoy!
