Author's Notes

TO FREEZE SWEET POTATO GNOCCHI:
Line a sheet pan that will fit in the freezer with wax paper. Arrange gnocchi in a single layer so they aren’t touching and freeze until solid.
When the gnocchi are frozen solid, transfer to a freezer bag with a zip top and return to the freezer. Depending on the size of your freezer, you may have to do this in batches. ( I did.)

WAYS TO COOK SWEET POTATO GNOCCHI:
Poach them in simmering water until the gnocchi float to the top. Use a slotted spoon or spider to transfer gnocchi to a serving bowl. Top with your favorite sauce, ragout, or vegetables.
Pan Fry them in butter with fresh herbs and top with parmesan cheese.
Deep Fry the gnocchi until they float. Use a spider to transfer to a dish lined with paper towels and top with grated parmesan cheese or other toppings.

Lightly flour a work surface. Place one piece of dough on the work surface and roll into a rope about 3/4” in diameter. Cut the rope into one-inch pieces. Run each gnocchi gently over the back of a fork to create the telltale indentations.
