How To Make Gnocchi

With the Imperia Gnocchi Attachment, fitted to the Imperia Pasta Machine, it is possible to obtain fresh gnocchi right at home.

To prep pasta for 4 people:

  • 1 1/8 Pound of flour
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1 small cup of water

Pass the dough several times through the rollers of the Imperia machine in the maximum opening position; the dough obtained should be soft and as thick as possible.

Cut the dough in pieces, shape them by rolling, with hands and obtain a small cylinder 10” long and ½” diameter. Pass the cylinder in the gnocchi attachment; the fresher the pasta the better the Cavatelli, Rigatelli and Sardinian gnocchetti.

If the results are not satisfactory (probably owing to the sheet not being thick enough, roll the strips lengthways (like breadsticks), this will make processing easier.
