This is me (well, my hands, anyway...) preparing gnocchi.
  Potatoes 750 Gram
  Flour 125 Gram
  Egg 1
  Maizena 50 Gram
  Nutmeg 1 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Black pepper To Taste
  Butter 1 Tablespoon

Boil and mash the potatoes. Add flour and maizena to the potatoes. Add egg. Add a pinch of nutmeg, salt and black pepper. Mix them well. Add butter. Mix well.
Knead potatoes on a working surface. Roll a long thin sausage. Cut it into small pieces. Shape the gnocchi.
Add a pinch of salt to boiling water. Pour gnocchi into the water. Once the gnocchi starts to float, it is done. Drain on a paper. Use your favorite sauce as an accompaniment.
