Make some Italian with your Food Storage

This was a really easy recipe and all the ingredients are things that should be in your food storage.  How great is that?  The original recipe is from my Taste of Home Cookbook.

Potato Gnocchi
4 medium potatoes, peeled (or about 1-1/2 cups THRIVE Freeze Dried Potato Chunks)
1 egg, lightly beaten (or 1 THRIVE Powdered Egg, reconstituted)
3 teaspoons salt, divided
1-3/4 to 2 cups all purpose flour
3 quarts water

Cook potatoes in boiling water until soft.  Mash.  Reserve 2 cups of Mashed Potatoes; save left over for another use.  Stir in egg and 2 teaspoons salt.  Gradually beat in flour.
Turn onto lightly floured surface and knead 15 times. Roll into 1/2 inch wide ropes. Cut ropes into 1-inch pieces. Press down with a lightly flour fork.

In a dutch over, bring water and 1 teaspoon sale to boil.  Cook gnocchi in small batches in boiling water for 8-10 minutes or until dumplings float to top and are cooked through. 

Removed with a slotted spoon. Serve immediately with marinara or your favorite sauce.
