I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve written something! But I got pregnant and had a baby! When I was pregnant, I was quite sick, so I couldn’t really cook much. I survived on mostly ice cream. And over the past 16 weeks, I’ve been so busy with the baby, I haven’t had much time to cook anything good or write. But I’ve started trying new things again.

Last night I made gnudi for the first time. It’s basically the same as gnocchi, I think, but I’ve never made that either. This is the first time I’ve made something from a cooking show and it was awesome! I saw it on Bitchin Kitchen yesterday and needed to make it. So here is the recipe:

4 large russet potatoes (I used 5 medium red potatoes)
1 cup flour
1/2 cup Parmesan
1 beaten egg

1/2 cup butter
12 dried apricots, julienned
12 sage leaves, julienned

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Put washed potatoes in oven and bake 1.5 hours. Take potatoes out of oven and cool enough to handle.

Put a pot of water on to boil. Scoop the flesh out of the skins and put into a bowl. Mash the potatoes or put them through a ricer. Mix with the flour, parm, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix with your hands for about a minute.

Put the mixture onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into quarters. Roll each quarter into a log. Cut the logs into 1 inch pieces. Put the pieces into the boiling water. Take them out after about a minute, when they begin to float.

Melt the butter over medium-high heat. Let it cook for about 1-2 minutes. Add the apricots and sage. Cook them for a few minutes until the butter is browned. Remove the mixture from the heat and add the gnudi. Mix and then serve.

Delicious! I don’t have any pictures this time, sorry. But my husband said this is something I need to make again, so I might post some in the future.

Happy Cooking!
