Gnocchi with sage brown butter and walnuts
There's some debate on the best method for making gnocchi - baking the potatoes can yield fine results - but the type of potato you use is the key. Too floury and the gnocchi will absorb too much water while they're cooking and fall apart; too waxy and they'll be gluey. In these gnocchi recipes, we've used Sebago, Nicola or Russet Burbank potatoes for optimal results. If you're feeling in a cheesy mood, there's also recipes for malfatti, the ricotta cousin to the potato gnocchi.
