Here's the recipe for homemade pasta:

Gnocchi and Broccoli Sauce with Leicester Cheese

 2 large russet potatoes roughly 1 lb a piece

1-1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon salt

Preheat oven to 400. Bake potatoes for 30-45 minutes until a skewer or butter knife goes in easily.

Cool until warm then remove the skin and pass the potatoes through a strainer or ricer.

In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer with paddle attachment, add 1 cup flour, make a well and crack the eggs into it. Add the potatoes and mix well. Add more flour if needed to achieve desired dough consistency similar Play-Doh.

Let rest for half an hour to hydrate the gluten. Separate dough into six balls. Working on a floured surface, roll each one out into a log with a diameter of about one inch. Cut into smaller pieces about 1/2 in wide and toss with remaining flour. Continue until all dough is done. Roll dough "balls" off of a gnocchi paddle, fork or just leave them plain. Cook in salted boiling water in batches removing gnocchi once it returns to a simmer and floats.


Broccoli sauce
