Italian Potatoes Gnocchi "Dumpling"

Dumplings, or "gnocchi", is a traditional Italian recipe very easy and simple to make.

This is a basic preparation to make potato dumplings, which can go with many flavored sauces.
Firstly, prepare the potatoes: wash them and, without peeling, put them in a pot with salted water and bring it to a boil .

While they're still hot, peel and mash the potatoes, putting them on a well floured pastry board
Add a pinch of salt and the flour and knead everything until you obtain a firm yet soft mixture.
At this point add an egg and keep on kneading until firm and lumpless.
Now roll the dough out into many sticks about 1-inch (2-3 cm) thick and start to slice your dumplings , putting them on a floured surface or tray.
Finally, in order to create their classic ribbed shape, roll each dumpling on the prongs of a fork, pressing it slightly.
Let your dumplings rest for 15 minutes, then boil them in a pretty large pot with salted water and drain when they float to the surface.
Prepare your favorite sauce and add it to your dumplings (you can try tomato sauce, my recipe is here)
