Italian Recipes - Gnocchi Alla Giordano

2 pounds Baking potatoes
1 cup All−purpose flour
1 Whole egg plus
1 Egg yolk, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon Salt
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Tomato sauce

Boil the potatoes in their jackets, drain, peel and put through a ricer or
food mill. While the potatoes are still warm, blend in the flour, add the
egg, egg yolk, butter and salt.
Place the potato mixture on a floured board and knead lightly; the dough
will be soft. Roll the dough in 1" thick sticks about 10" long. Cut each roll into 3/4" pieces.
Rub each pieces of dough lightly over the coarse side of a cheese grater. In
a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the gnocchi until they rise to the
top of the water. Using a slotted spoon, remove the gnocchi to a warm bowl.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, top with tomato sauce and serve at once.
