Make Your Own Gnocchi, Sans Food Mill or Ricer!
Deb of Smitten Kitchen had all but given up on ever making good gnocchi at home, until recently coming across an ingenious technique: "Get this: you grate the potatoes. No food mill or ricer purchase required! (Which is great because you don’t have room for one anyway!) After grating the baked and peeled potatoes, you knead in some flour, salt and an egg, and your dough is complete! And people, these are some killer gnocchi, with a lightness that I’ve only had before at top-notch Italian restaurants."
