Make This Recipe



3 potatoes, microwaved and skins removed

1/2 cup cottage cheese

2/3 cup white whole wheat flour

2 Eggland's Best eggs, beaten

2 teaspoons thyme leaves

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon black pepper

Peas and Onions:

1/4 cup butter, divided

1 onion, thinly sliced

2 cups peas

2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves

3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook potatoes in the microwave and remove the skins.
  2. In a food processor, blend together the potatoes and cottage cheese just until smooth. Scoop out the mashed potatoes from the blender into a large bowl and add in flour, beaten eggs, thyme, garlic, onion powder and pepper. Mix until just mixed together- do not overmix.
  3. In a large pan, heat 2 inches deep of water until boiling.
  4. On a large clean surface, take a handful of flour and spread it out. Divide dough into 4 piles and lightly roll each piece of dough into long ropes until dough is about 1 inch thick. Cut the dough into about 1 inch pieces.
  5. Slowly add each of the gnocchi into the boiling water cooking for 2 minutes each until they float. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon. Continue until all gnocchi are cooked.
  6. In a large skillet, heat butter and cook onions for 3 minutes. Add in the gnocchi in batch and brown for 1-2 minutes per side. Add in the peas and thyme.
  7. Top with shredded parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
