For the Gnocchi


  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted, plus more for dusting flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • salt and pepper to taste

Rosemary Asiago Sauce


  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup or chicken broth, low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup asiago or parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Step 1

    Bring a large pot of water to boil. Peel potatoes and cut into smaller chunks, about 2-3 inches in size. Boil potatoes for 20 minutes. Potatoes are cooked if very soft when punctured with a knife or fork. Drain water and place potatoes on a cloth to absorb the excess water.

  • Step 2

    While potatoes boil, prepare sauce by heating butter in a medium sauté pan until slightly browned. Add in fresh garlic and rosemary and cook for 4 minutes. Stir in half and half and chicken stock then bring to a boil. Sauce should thicken slightly but still remain watery. The sauce will thicken further once gnocchi is added. Cover until ready for use.

  • Step 3

    Mash potatoes using a potato masher or pulse in blender until smooth. In a bowl, add egg, salt and flour to the potatoes and mix until a slightly stiff dough forms. Dust a flat surface with flour and turn dough onto surface. Form dough into a ball and cut into long strips. On your floured surface, roll each strip with your hands until it's about a half inch to an inch in thickness. Cut strip into 1-inch pieces. Dust gnocchi pieces with flour to prevent them from sticking Continue with remaining dough.

  • Step 4

    Return sauce to low heat. Bring another pot of water to boil and, working in batches, cook gnocchi for about 2-3 minutes. Gnocchi will rise to the top of the water when cooked. Remove from boiling water with a slotted spoon and place directly in sauce. Stir slowly as you incorporate each batch into the sauce.

  • Step 5

    Once all the gnocchi has been cooked and added to sauce, remove from heat and add in shredded cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper.
