Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Potato Gnocchi w/ sage sauce

8 tablespoons semolina flour (see note)
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2" cubes
2 medium eggs
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tsp sage
2/3 cup skim milk
1 ground black pepper

Recipe Directions for Sweet Potato Gnocchi w/ sage sauce

  1. Evenly dust 2 baking sheets with 2 tablespoons of the semolina flour.

  2. .Place the sweet potatoes in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 12 minutes, or until tender. Drain and place in a large bowl. Mash until smooth. Let cool for about 10 minutes.

  3. Stir in the egg substitute, thyme, salt, and nutmeg. Add 1/ 2 cup of the all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup of the Parmesan, and the remaining 6 tablespoons semolina flour. Mix well. Shape the dough into a ball and divide into 8 portions.

  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 portion of the dough at a time into a 1/4" x 16" rope. Cut into 1" pieces. Place the pieces on the prepared baking sheets as they are cut.

  5. In a large saucepan over high heat, bring the broth and sage to a boil. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until reduced by one-third. Reduce the heat to medium. In a small bowl, whisk together the creamer and the remaining 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour. Whisk into the broth. Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes, or until thickened. Season with the pepper. Keep warm over low heat.

  6. Cook the gnocchi in a large pot of boiling water for 45 seconds to 1 minute, or until they float to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to the saucepan with the sauce. Stir into the sauce until well-coated.

  7. Recipe Tips

  8. Semolina flour is milled from the heart (or endosperm) of durum wheat. Also called pasta flour, it is favored for use in pasta, pizza, and gnocchi dough. Look for semolina flour in the baking section of large supermarkets and Italian grocery stores. If you can't find it, all-purpose flour can be substituted.
