Preparation time: more than 60 min
Ingredients 4 portions:

8 medium sized floury potatoes
250 g smooth flour
4 tbsp liquid butter
4 egg yolks
80 g durum wheat semolina

100 g butter
sage leaves


For the gnocchi, peel the potatoes, cut it into pieces and cook until soft. Press through the potato press while still hot and knead into a smooth dough with the remaining ingredients. Wrap the dough in foil and let it rest for about 20 minutes at room temperature. Roll the dough into sticks and cut off nut-sized balls – form into gnocchi over the back of a fork. Flour your hands again and again. In a large pot, bring salted water to the boil, place the gnocchi into the pot and simmer until they have reached the surface.

Heat butter in a large pan – add salt and sage leaves. Swing the scooped gnocchi in the salt butter and serve with green salad.
