Makes 2 servings
2 C mashed potatoes
1/4-1/2 C all-purpose flour
salt and freshly ground black pepper, as needed
Combine the mashed potatoes with the egg and season with salt and pepper, depending on how seasoned your mashed potatoes are. Add 1/4 cup of the flour, and stir together until well-combined. The dough should form a ball easily and shouldn't stick to the counter when rolled out. If it does, add a bit more flour, a tablespoon at a time.

At this point, you can cook the gnocchi, refrigerate them for a few hours until you're ready to cook them and toss with sauce, or freeze them. When you're ready to cook, bring a large pot of water to boil, season generously with salt, and boil them in 2-3 batches for 2 minutes, or until they float to the top of the water. Remove them with a strainer and toss with a warm sauce of your choice.
