Blue Gnocchi

I thought with a new month I might move
on to a new color but it doesn't look like its going to
happen. I'm definitely in a blue period.

So for blue gnocchi boil 1 pound of blue potatoes.
Mash them up so they are not lumpy at all.
Add 1 1/2 cup of flour and a beaten egg.

Make a nice non sticky dough.

Roll into a coil about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut into 1/2 inch pieces of however big or small
you like.

This is where I fell down on my sword.
You are supposed to put an indentation in them
so they sort of curl up. I couldn't get the hang of it.

Bring a big pot of salted water to a boil.
Boil gnocchi till it rises to the surface.

I served it with some melted butter and sage.
