  1. Wash the potatoes carefully and boil them without peeling. Next, get rid of the thin layer of skin and mash the potatoes.
  2. Create a hole in the centre of the mashed potato and fill it with one raw egg and salt. Knead the dough quickly. Slowly add the flour.
  3. Form long thick slices. Cut each one into smaller pieces and flatten each one with the fork, decorating the gnocchi.
  4. Boil water with some salt in a pot. Start cooking the potato gnocchi in this liquid. Once they float to the surface of the water, you can strain the gnocchi.
  5. Now it`s time to prepare the pesto sauce. Crush the garlic with some salt. Add nuts and crush them as well. Add basil leaves. Turn everything into a smooth green mass. Finally add grated hard cheese and olive oil!

Serve potato gnocchi with this rich and nutritious pesto sauce. If there are leftovers in the bowl, you can storage them in the jar. Bon Appetite!
