LoBello's Spaghetti House - Gnocchi

Courtesy Food Network
Servings: 4 - 6 servings

6 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 cup dry potato flakes
Place 2 cups of water, 5 cups of all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup of potato flakes in a large bowl. Save 1 cup of flour for later use. Add 1/2 cup of water to the dry ingredients and mix by hand. Keep adding water through the tablespoon until the flour is incorporated - but not sticky. If the batter mixture gets too sticky, add flour until the batter feels dry to the touch. Lightly dust the work surface with flour. Turn the batter mixture onto the floured work surface and continue kneading the batter until it is smooth.

Cover the dough with a clean towel and let it rest for about 15 minutes.

Once the dough rests for about 15 minutes, divide the dough into 4 pieces. Flour each piece thoroughly anew. Use a rolling pin to flatten each piece of dough until it is about 1/8-inch thick. Using a pizza cutter, cut each piece of dough into strips about 1/2 "wide and each strip into" little nuggets "about 3/4" wide. With the tip of a slightly inclined eating fork, press each “nugget” into the tip of the fork and roll down. This gives you a small round piece of dough with ridges. Place the finished gnocchi on a floured pan until all of the batter is ready.

Bring 6 liters of water to the boil - carefully add the finished gnocchi to the boiling water and stir completely to avoid sticking. Reduce the heat to a slow boil and cook the gnocchi for about 8 minutes or until the desired tenderness is achieved. Drain the gnocchi thoroughly with a sieve and serve immediately with your favorite sauce.

Pierogi lasagne
from the Omnomicon

1 pound lasagna noodles (don't use the no-boil type; I tried and they were way too dry for this dish)
4 lbs. red or white potatoes
1/4 cup low-fat / fat-free sour cream
1/2 cup of skimmed milk
2 cups of low-fat cheddar cheese

2. Chop the potatoes into 1-inch cubes, place them in a saucepan of cold water (enough to cover), and allow them to come to a boil. Continue cooking until the potatoes are tender enough to have a fork prick (about 15 minutes). Drain, puree, mix with a mixer. Add the sour cream and milk and mix a little more. Add salt if you like. Stir in the cheddar (it will melt).
3. Melt all of the butter over medium-high heat and sauté the onion until the rings no longer retain their shape (about 5-8 minutes).
4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease the bottom of a 9 × 13 baking dish with some onion butter (I also sprayed Pam on the pan - I'm scared of food sticking to dishes, hah). Place three of the noodles on the bottom of the bowl and divide the potatoes one at a time along the length of each noodle.
5. When you are done, flatten the potatoes, then spread about a quarter of the onion on top and sprinkle with a small amount of butter. Repeat this twice (or more if your dish has room), then add pasta and the rest of the onions and butter on top.
6. Put in the oven for 20 minutes or until they look melty and golden. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Serves 6-8.

Recipe courtesy of Mario Batali, 2001

1/2 cup of olive oil
1/2 cup butter
1 cup onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
1/4 cup carrots, finely chopped
1/4 pound pancetta, ground (you can ask your butcher to do this)
1 pound of veal
1/2 pound ground beef
1 pound ground pork
2 cups of whole milk
1 cup of white wine
1/2 cup tomato paste
Tagliatelle, recipe follows
Parmesan cheese

In a large Dutch oven or saucepan, add olive oil and butter and heat. Add onions, celery and carrots and cook until very soft and start to caramelize. Mix all the meat. Put the meat in the pan and begin to brown. When the meat changes color and releases its own fluids, add the milk. Cook until the milk has almost completely evaporated - it should only be moist around the edges of the meat, about 15 minutes. Add the wine. Add the tomato paste and stir well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 2 hours.

Roll out pasta dough on a pasta machine to the thinnest setting. Cut into strips that are 4 inches wide and 8 inches long. Starting with the 4-inch side, loosely roll the pasta into a tube that is about 4 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide. Cut the open side into 1/4-inch wide strips. Roll out the pasta and place in small bundles.

Bring 6 liters of water to a boil. Add salt to the water and bring to a boil. Add the tagliatelle and cook for 5 minutes. Drain the tagliatelle and add to the Bolognese sauce. If necessary, dilute with a little pasta water. Throw 1 minute. Serve immediately in warm pasta bowls. Top with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Tagliatelle:
1 3/4 to 2 cups cake flour
1 3/4 to 2 cups all-purpose flour
4 eggs

Place 3 1/2 cups of flour in the center of a large wooden cutting board. Make a well in the center of the flour and add the eggs and olive oil. Using a fork, beat the eggs and oil together and begin building in the flour, starting from the inside edge of the well.

As you widen the well, continue to push the flour up from the base of the mound to maintain the well shape. The batter will come together when half the flour is incorporated.

Using both hands, knead the dough with your palms. Once you have a cohesive mass, remove the batter from the board and scrape off any leftover pieces and throw them away. Grind the board lightly and knead for another 6 minutes. The dough should be elastic and a little sticky. Wrap the dough in plastic and let it sit for 30 minutes at room temperature. Roll or shape as desired.
