PREPARATION
Start cooking the potatoes without peeling them, boiled them in no salted water until they are cooked more or less 20 minutes since the water boils; in order to be faster you can use the steamer cooker, in this case you will need only 10-12 minutes. When the potatoes are ready, let them cool a bit, peel them,

Now divide the dough in parts and roll each one in order to obtain a sort of longs sausages thick as a finger. Pay attention to have always enough flour on the worktable in order to not attach the dough to it. Cut each long sausage in small pieces of 1 cm length. When you have all the pieces, you have to give them the shape of gnocchi: to do this, take a fork. Hold the fork with one hand and lean it to the work board, with the other hand take a piece of dough and with the index finger press rolling it on the fork: in this way you obtain gnocchi.
