Instructions

Method for the sauce:

Place the porcini mushrooms in a medium bowl. Pour the hot stock over the mushrooms and let them soak for 15 minutes. Drain the mushrooms, reserving the soaking water.

Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion, mushrooms and porcini mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are soft, but not browned, about five minutes. Add the garlic. Cook for about two minutes.

Add the cream and reserved stock to the sauté pan and increase the heat until the mixture begins to boil. Simmer until thickened, about 5-10 minutes. Season to taste. Add the parmesan cheese and serve with fresh basil.

 Method for the Gnocchi

Mix the mash potato, egg, flour and salt until a dough is formed. Sprinkle some flour on your working surface. Place the mixture onto the working surface and roll into a long sausage 3cm thick.  Cut into 2 cm pieces and press them slightly with the back of a fork.  Bring a pot of water to the boil and place the gnocchi gently into the boiling water. Let them boil until they float on top of the water. Strain them.

Heat the olive oil and butter in a pan and fry the gnocchi until golden brown.

Serve with the Porcini sauce, some parmesan cheese and fresh basil.
