|3 (850g) Sebago potatoes|
|1 cup plain flour|
|125g Liddells Lactose Free Shredded Parmesan Cheese, plus extra to serve|
|2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus extra to serve|
|⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil|
|2 garlic cloves, crushed|
|1 lemon, juiced|
|Watercress salad to serve|
Peel the potatoes (net weight will be 750g). Cut into even 4cm pieces then place in a saucepan, cover with water, place over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Cook for 15 minutes or until completely tender, but not falling apart.
Drain and allow to steam dry in a colander for 15 minutes to remove excess moisture.
Mash with a potato masher then gently fold through the flour and season with 2 tsp salt and 2 tsp freshly cracked black pepper.
Stir through 75g of Liddells Lactose Free Parmesan to combine and then add the egg.
Form into a dough, then wrap in baking paper and chill for 1 hour to firm up slightly.
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough into 6 equal portions then roll each into a 2 ½ cm wide log.
Use a knife to cut into 2-3cm pieces and place on the lined baking tray. Repeat with remaining dough portions.
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil over medium high heat. Add the gnocchi in batches and cook for 30 second after they rise to the top. Drain, reserving ⅓ cup cooking water. Toss the gnocchi in half the olive oil.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat and pan-fry gnocchi in 2 batches, turning occasionally with a spatula for 3 minutes or until golden brown.
Return all gnocchi to the pan, then add extra pepper to the pan, along with the garlic and remaining olive oil.
Toss to coat and cook for 1 minute, then add the reserved cooking water, lemon and remaining 50g of Liddells Lactose Free Parmesan and toss to coat again.
Serve scattered with extra cheese and extra pepper alongside a lightly dressed watercress salad.
