Ok so this isn’t very Christmassy at all but it is great food, a bit of a challenge, and overall delicious…so I think you can forgive me this one time. I’ve had the plan to make gnocchi from scratch for a while but I thought it was some huge process that was gonna take hours, turns out it’s not and it uses very simple ingredients, better still, it can even be made vegan!
Now, slice the tubes into little pillows around the length of a fingernail, gently press one side of each piece with the fork so it imprints the fork pattern, this will help the sauce to cling better. As I said, mine are very big, you don’t really want them this big, they should be oblong shaped and about an inch long. Here’s the bit I didn't do very well at but maybe you’ll do better, take each gnocchi and place it at the base of the prongs of a fork (the fork should be upside down) VERY GENTLY roll the gnocchi along the length of the prongs until it curls, repeat this for each one and you should end up with dainty, curly gnocchi! Arrange them on a floured wooden surface like a chopping board and set them aside.
