"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Mix together the mashed potatoes, flour, egg, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Knead gently on a floured surface. Cut dough in half and roll each piece into a long rope, about one inch in diameter. Cut into one inch pieces. With finger, indent and roll cut side in flour. Lightly flour them and let them sit on a floured surface, not touching each other, for at least 30 minutes. Keep turning them over so they can dry.
Place gnocchi in a large kettle of rapidly boiling salted water. Boil gently for about 8 minutes or until gnocchi are cooked (not gummy). Serve with spaghetti sauce and a sprinkling of grated cheese.
Makes about 70 dumplings.
