Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1 of 5 Mash potatoes with ricer or food mill over a large bowl. Stir in flour, sugar and salt just until mixed.
  2. 2 of 5 On lightly floured surface, divide dough into eighths. Roll each piece into cylinder 1/2 inch in diameter. With tines of fork, press indentations across the cylinder, down its length. Cut 1-inch pieces crosswise. Place dough pieces on baking sheets lined with waxed paper.
  3. 3 of 5 Heat marinara sauce in saucepan.
  4. 4 of 5 Meanwhile, bring large pot of water to boiling. Reduce heat. Immediately add gnocchi, working in 3 or 4 batches and dropping them in a few at a time to prevent sticking. Simmer until gnocchi just float to surface, about 2 minutes. Immediately remove with strainer or slotted spoon to colander; drain.
  5. 5 of 5 Spoon some marinara sauce over bottom of large serving platter. Add gnocchi. Top with some additional sauce; toss gently with rubber spatula. Sprinkle with cheese. Garnish with basil sprigs. Serve immediately with green beans.
