Original recipe by EDGELL | 20.6.16



  • 1 cup (100g) dry powder Edgell Instant Mash
  • 1½ cups boiling water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • Leggo's Pasta Sauce of your choice, heated
  • Parmesan cheese for serving


Place Edgell Instant Mash in a large bowl. Carefully add boiling water and mix with a fork until it resembles mashed potato.

Add egg yolk and stir well. Add plain flour; mix until all the flour is incorporated and the mixture is thick.

Sprinkle extra plain flour on the bench. Take ½ cup of the potato mixture and roll into a long sausage shape. Cut into 2cm pieces and place onto a lightly floured tray. Continue with remaining mixture.

Heat pasta sauce as directed.


Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Carefully place the gnocchi pieces in the water and cook for 5 minutes or until they float to the surface.

Remove gnocchi with a slotted spoon. Serve with hot pasta sauce and sprinkle with a little grated parmesan cheese.


Twice cooked gnocchi is even yummier. Heat 2 tablespoons each of butter and oil in a frypan. Add cooked and drained gnocchi in batches, pan fry until golden brown.
