I was surprised to see it called for instant mashed potatoes, but it seems like they'd be a lot easier to make.
3 C Instant Mashed Potatoes 5 or 6 C flour
3 C Hot water 1 or 2 eggs
2 Tbls Oil 1 Tsp. salt
Make a well with 5 or 6 C Flour - add eggs, potatoes, hot water & oil. Mix well & knead dough until smooth. Shape into small ropes around 3/4" thick. Cut in small pieces (1 inch). Make indentation with thumb. Boil in simmering water around 15 min.
The salt seems to be missing from the instructions and there is also no mention of how to tell when they're done, but I'd think you'd want to cook them al-dente, like any other pasta.
Until next time - buona notte & felice cucinare!
