"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Gnocchi with Mushroom Sauce
Gnocchi with Mushroom Sauce
(Gnocchi con Sugo di Funghi)

For the Gnocchi:
1 and 1/2 lbs russet potatoes (about 2 medium)
1 large egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Pinch of grated nutmeg
7 tablespoons (about) all purpose flour

For the Mushroom Sauce:
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
12 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, sliced
1/2 cup sliced shallots
1 3/4 cups chicken stock or chicken broth
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage

3 cups coarsely chopped Arugula
1/2 teaspoon (about) white truffle oil (optional)*
1/3 cup grated Parmigiano cheese
Prepare the Gnocchi:
Preheat oven to 450 F.

Pierce potatoes with fork.

Bake until tender, about 1 hour.

Cool slightly; cut potatoes in half and scoop pulp into large bowl.
Mash potatoes well.

Mix in egg yolk, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Mix in enough flour to form firm, slightly elastic dough.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface.

Divide dough into 4 equal portions.

Gently roll 1 portion between hands and work surface to form 1/2-inch thick rope about 18 inches long.

Cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces.

Roll each piece over tines of dinner fork to make grooves in gnocchi.

Arrange gnocchi in single layer on floured baking sheet. Repeat with remaining 3 portions of dough.

Working in small batches, cook gnocchi in large pot of boiling salted water until gnocchi rise to top and are tender, about 5 minutes.

Using slotted spoon, transfer gnocchi to large baking pan. (Gnocchi can be prepared ahead.
Let stand 1 hour at room temperature, or cover and refrigerate up to 2 days.)

Prepare the Mushroom Sauce:
Cook butter and olive oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat until butter begins to brown, about 2 minutes.

Add mushrooms and shallots and saute until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Add stock and sage; simmer until liquid is slightly reduced, about 8 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Add gnocchi to sauce in skillet and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.

Add arugula and stir until wilted.

Divide equally among bowls.

Drizzle with truffle oil, if desired. Sprinkle with cheese. Makes 4 Servings.

Note: *Available at Italian markets, specialty foods stores and some supermarkets.
