Q: I made gnocchi last week, with a combination of potatoes, ricotta, and Parmesan (and other essential ingredients). The dough looked great, but when I boiled them — even for just 3 minutes — they came out quite puffy and sticky. What can I do to get that great small, sweet shape and taste in the future?
