Home Made Mush Recipe.
Several potatoes peeled and chopped
Firstly boil the potatoes until soft, drain the excess water. Mash potatoes to a soft consistency and add flout, kneading the mix until it forms almost a potato dough. Continue to work this through until a smooth consistency is achieved.
Pinch off pieces of the dough, roll into small balls and put to one side as shown in the below image. This is the uncooked form of your Gnocchi. You can in the afore mentioned stages add salt and pepper to taste.
While the Gnocchi is being prepared get your gorgeous wife to start on the sauce..
For the sauce you will require
Can of tomatoes diced
Black olives sliced
Cook onion and garlic until the onion becomes clear, add the capsicum and cook for a couple more minutes, the capsicum will begin to soften…Add tomatoes, olives and some fresh basil to the mix salt and pepper to taste, cook until the alleged Gnocchi is ready.
Life doesn’t always go to plan, sometimes you are ahead, sometimes you are behind. Sometimes pasta works other times, you end up with liquid mash!

I am sure there is a point in this somewhat over elaborate metaphor I call a blog…
