Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Last night I made gnocchi using sweet potatoes. This was a simple change that added a nice sweet flavor. I prepared a simple sauce of parsley pesto and grated Parm.

I used this basic recipe, but had to add extra flour, as the sweet potato does not have the same starch that white potatoes do.

I boiled the potato and passed through a food mill.


I let them cool in the refrigerator for a hour or so, as they we soft. Then sauted them in a little butter and oil.


To finish, I tossed with some parsley pesto and topped with cheese.
