“This is the best gnocchi dish I’ve ever had! 🤩 The sweet potato fits perfectly with the complex and savory flavors of the sauce. I highly recommend to have a piece of bread on the side to make a “scarpetta”; soaking up the sauce with the bread! Also having some fresh rucola on top gives it a crisp crunch. Buon appetito! 🥂”

Ingredients

Servings:-4+
sweet potato
1½ cups flour
12 cherry tomatoes
1 cup spinach
charlot onion
2 cloves garlic
½ cup parsley
1 dash basil
4 tbsp olive oil
1 dash salt
1 dash pepper
1 tsp chili flakes
½ cup white wine
½ cup pasta water
1 tbsp butter
½ lime
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Step 1/4

    • sweet potato

    Set oven to 200 C, poke holes in the sweet potato and set it in the oven for 50 min or until soft all the way through. When you can easily poke a fork all the way through the potato it’s done.

  • Step 2/4

    • 12 cherry tomatoes
    • 1 cup spinach
    • charlot onion
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • ½ cup parsley

    While the potato is in the oven mince the tomatoes, spinach, onion, garlic and parsley. Sauté the spinach and tomato lightly and set it aside.

  • Step 3/4

    When the potato is ready take it out and let it rest for 10 min, so it’s not so hot when handling. Peel the skin off and mush the potato with a fork. Add the flour to the mushed potatoes and keep adding until it’s no longer sticky. Pull one lump out of the dough and roll it out into a long hot dog. Cut it into small pieces and use a fork to make ridges in the gnocchi (optional). Cook the gnocchi until it floats up to the surface (aprox. 2 min) and scoop them up into a bowl.
