For the pesto

Preparation steps

1.
For the gnocchi: cook the potatoes in salted water for approx. 30 minutes until done. Drain, peel and mash. Let cool.
2.
Mix the mashed potato with the flour and egg. Season with salt and nutmeg. The potato dough should not be sticky and should be easy to shape.
3.
Shape the potato dough into several rolls (approx. 1 1/2 cm / 3/4 in Ø) on a floured work surface. Cut into 1 1/2cm / 3/4 in pieces and shape them into little gnocchi. Place the gnocchi in a big pan of boiling salted water and turn the heat down to low. Leave the gnocchi in the water for approx. 12 minutes until done; do not boil.
4.
For the pesto: Roast the pine nuts in a pan without fat over a medium heat until golden brown. Let cool.
5.
Mix the pine nuts, basil, garlic and half the cheese in a blender, adding the oil gradually until the pesto is smooth. Season with salt.
6.
Drain the gnocchi and mix with the pesto. Serve on warmed plates, sprinkling the remaining cheese over and garnishing with basil.
