Once you decide to make Pašticada, it is perfect time to learn how to make a gnocchi as well.

A taste of DIY gnocchi cannot be compared to those  from the supermarket.

It is not a big deal  ( although it may seem complicated ), you need just half an hour of spare time and:

INGREDIENTS: (for 6 persons )

  • 1kg old potatoes ( should be old)
  • 1 egg
  • 50g fat or butter
  • 700g – 1000g flour


  1. Cook potatoes with the crust ( do not peel it beforehand, it is much better  for structure and taste of a gnocchi )
  2. When the potatoes are cooked, peel them while still warm( it is easier to make proper dough).
  3. Then put the potatoes in a mixing bowl and mix with hand mixer. Add an egg and fat, mix it a bit.
  4. Now you can use your hands and make a dough on a kitchen board.( extra tip: sprinkle it with flour beforehand ).
  5. Gradually add flour while you are forming a ball of dough.The dough should be smooth and even. It is ready when it is stops sticking to your hands. Divide it into 3-4 equal balls.
  6.  Using your palms (floured) roll each piece of dough into roll thick 2-3cm and cut it with knife into piece 1cm long.

  1. If you want, press each gnocchi on the grater, in this case sauce of Pasticada will better permeated with gnocchi.
  2. Put a water in a big pan, add a pinch of salt.Cook gnocchi in boiling water for 2-3 minutes.They are cooked when they are floating on the water surface.

Spread cooked gnocchi  into a pan and pour a bit with a sauce. That way you’ll avoid sticking.
