Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Gnocchi is simply delicious but also a simple and easy way for children to be making their own pasta style dishes.
This recipe is unique as we use sweet potato as the base for the gnocchi. It is also baked which makes it easier for a classroom environment.
This class is perfect for children a little older, perhaps around 6 or 7, as there are multiple steps and the lesson a little longer. Although I have made it myself with 5 year olds and really it is just fun to get in there.

You will need per child:

150g of steamed and then cooled sweet potato
3 tbs of flour

And then an array of ingredients for the sauce such as:
Tomato passata
Grated cheese
Seasonal Veggies
Herbs and spices.

Enjoy
