  1. Gnocchi:Peel the potatoes and cut them in pcs. Fill a large pot with cool water, add in a healthy pinch of salt and the potatoes. Put over high heat and cook.

In general, the rule is 2 1/2 c. of flour for every 1 pound 11/2 ounce. of potatoes.
  2. Divide the dough into large pcs. Roll them out on a floured board into tubes about a finger in circumference. Cut tubes into one-inch pcs. Roll each piece quickly on the board with the thumb and make an impression in the face of each of the gnocchi. Or possibly use a cheese grater's smallest surface to roll the pcs of dough around your thumb (being careful not to grate your thumb!). When finished, the pcs should look like a plump seashell.
  3. Lay the pcs on a floured towel. Fill a large pot with water, add in salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Add in a few gnocchi at a time. When they rise to the surface, remove them from the water with a skimmer or possibly slotted spoon. Drain them and arrange them in layers in a serving bowl. Pour a substantial amount of meat sauce over each layer and sprinkle with grated Parmesan.
