I made these little pillowy treats in the shape of scallops for no reason what-so-ever and served them in a pesto broth.
2 large russet potatoes peeled and boiled.
1/2 a cup of sifted flour
1 large egg
1/2 a cup of Gruyère cheese, grated.
Put the potatoes through a ricer
Gently, ever so gently mix the egg, flour, cheese, salt & pepper with the riced potatoes till a soft dough forms, quickly and without handling too much shape into little gnocchis, I made a scallop shape. Drop into boiling vegetable broth and cook until they float - about 1 or two minutes and serve. I ladled a little of the broth into a bowl and then I spooned on some fresh pesto and a drizzle of olive oil, for no reason what-so-ever.
