Looked in the fridge today to see what I could muster up for lunch. Had some leftover mash from the fish pie last night and a bit of veggie bolognese from Tuesdays tea. Was inspired by Gregg Wallace on Great British Food Revival on BBC2 last night to make gnocchi with the leftover mash.
I mixed the mash with some plain flour and made long sausage shapes which I cut into about 1inch pieces then did the traditional gnocchi marks with a fork.
I popped them into a pan of salted boiling water and let them do their thing. Gregg said on the TV programme they would float when ready which they did. I drained them and had them with the leftover bolognese and a sprinkle of cheese.
So this is my lunch today using leftovers from the fridge. Will sit at the computer eating this whilst I write my blog. It was very filling, could not manage it all so the bit that's left will be given to the birds.
