Recipe adapted from

2 large baking potatoes
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup wheat flour
1 egg

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cut potatoes and add to pot. Cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain.

Add potatoes, flour, and egg to food processor. Process until a dough ball forms, run 45 more seconds.

Shape small portions of the dough into long "snakes". On a floured surface, cut snakes into half-inch pieces. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Drop in gnocchi and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until gnocchi have risen to the top; drain and serve.

-Works well with left over potatoes or mashed potatoes
-If dough is sticky add more flour
-Can make ahead. Store covered in refrigerator
