Super Model Project:  Sweet Potato Gnocchi

While most of the time a Ms. Teigan can do no wrong…this sweet potato gnocchi did. I’m not sure it’s totally CT’s fault, I just don’t eat much gnocchi. So, I’m not sure what the texture should be, how big it should be, etc. etc. (That’s what she said). Why eat gnocchi when you could eat pasta or a potato?  Who needs potatoes mascarading as pasta? Not I, but I did it in the name of eating like a super model. I’ll spare you the recipe, as it’s all over the interwebs anyway.

Here’s a look at my process.

First step, buy a giant sweet potato. Wrap it in a wet paper towel and zap it for about 12 minutes. Watch that bitch shrivel.

Next up, toss it’s guts with ricotta and flour. Make three balls.

Roll and cut balls into nuggets that seem too large.

The finished product! Sweet potato gnocchi in a sage brown butter sauce with a sprinkling of parmesan. Looks OK…no idea if it was undercooked or I just don’t know what gnocchi tastes like.

On to the next one….
