Fante's Cousin Liana's Gnocchi Board is perfect for making authentic gnocchi pasta. Gnocchi, literally meaning 'lump,' is a light and plump Italian dumpling made from a potato and semolina dough.
Special ridges on the board form a more consistent shape without flattening the delicate dough, like using a fork can. The traditional texture helps pasta hold more delicious sauce. The easy-grip handle steadies the board at the perfect angle during use. Simple to use.
Prepare dough according to the desired gnocchi recipe. Roll dough into long ropes, 0.74-inch in diameter, then cut into individual squares, 0.75-inch long. For best results, work each piece separately. Place a square of dough onto the Gnocchi Board and press slightly to imprint it. Start at the top of the pasta and roll it along the ridges with a gentle pressure to imprint the entire circumference. Dust the formed gnocchi with flour to prevent them from sticking and set aside until all dough is used. Cousin Liana's Gnocchi Board also works nicely for homemade cavatelli.
