Boil water in a saucepan. Put the loaf on a sliced ​​cutting board. Cut the dough into approx. a finger-thick slice. Rolled out with your hands, then cut into 2-3 cm pieces. Squeeze the bottom and top of the cylinder with your finger so you will get small “barrels”. You can line one side of the “barrels” with a fork.

Put the gnocchies into boiling water. They cook for a few minutes and come up to the top of the water. When done, pour the water off the gnocchie.

4. Butter

Melt the butter in a pan when it is already sizzling, add the gnocchi and bake for a few minutes until it starts to blush. Spoon the fresh pesto to cover the gnocchi well and stir for a few minutes.
