Preparation steps

1.
Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C in a fan oven), 400°F, gas 6.
2.
Prick the potatoes all over with a fork, place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for around 1 hour until soft.
3.
Meanwhile mix the lemon juice and a little zest with the olive oil and add the olives.
4.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and leave to cool. When they are lukewarm, peel and press through a potato ricer. Spread the potato out over the work surface and sprinkle the flour, nutmeg and a little salt over. Add the egg and the chopped rocket and knead the mixture into a smooth dough.
5.
Divide the dough into four portions and roll each portion out on a floured work surface into a long roll about the width of a finger. Cut each roll into pieces 2-3 cm long. Cook the gnocchi in batches in simmering salted water for 2-3 minutes until they rise to the surface. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain well.
6.
Heat the butter in a pan and sear the gnocchi.
7.
Arrange the gnocchi on plates and scatter over some rocket and the olives. Drizzle with the lemon-flavoured oil. Serve garnished with parmesan shavings.
