Gnocchi (Italian Potato Dumplings) With Meat Sauce

  Potatoes 3 (Enough For 2 Cup Mashed / Riced)
  Unbleached flour 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs) (1/4 Cup Flour For Dredging)

Cook potatoes and mash or rice without added liquid.
While warm, gradually mix in the flour.
Form mixture into long rolls, 1/2-3/4 inch in diameter.

Have ready a pot of salted boiling water.
Carefully lower rolls into water.
