Potato Cheese Gnocchi in Mushroom Cream Sauce

I have a delicious gnocchi recipe for you. It may look a little hard to prepare but trust me it was pretty simple and I had never made gnocchi from scratch before either. It was also yummy. We ate way too much and couldn't walk after because we were so full!  :)

Gnocchi Dough:

1 Large Potato

1/2 of a small container of Ricotta Cheese

1 Egg

A little less then 1 1/2 Cups of Flour

Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder

Mushroom Cream Sauce Ingredients:

1 Large Carton White Mushrooms with Stems

1 Tsp Fresh Chopped Garlic

Oil for Frying

1/4 Cup Mozzarella Cheese

3 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese

1/2 Cup Milk

1 Tsp Salt, Sugar and Flour

 Microwave the potato for about 4 minutes or until soft and mashable. Combine the rest of the dough ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mash the potato in a separate bowl and add it to the rest of the dough ingredients in the mixing bowl. Mix in a mixer or combine with your hands until it is one perfect ball of dough. If it's a little sticky add some flour. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and then lower the flame a little. Take off pinches of dough and roll into balls. Drop balls of dough into the boiling water about 10 at a time. Allow them to cook for about 3-4 minutes or until they rise to the top of the water in the pot. Take them out with a slotted spoon and put them on a plate to the side. Prepare the sauce: wash and chop the mushrooms up  into medium pieces with their stems included. Put a little oil into a frying pan. Add the mushrooms and the fresh garlic. Saute' till browned and cooked through. Add the mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Stirring them in constantly until melted. Add the milk, salt, sugar and flour (the thickening agent) last and right before serving. The mushrooms tend to suck up any liquids and if you leave the sauce to sit the mushrooms will soak it right up. Plate the gnocchi and spoon the mushroom cream sauce over it right before serving so to avoid the gnocchi getting soft and mushy. Enjoy!

How do you pronounce Gnocchi? I say "ni-yo ki" Some say its pronounced how it looks though.
