Using a sweet potato puts an interesting spin on a classic recipe.

Maria Call shares a healthier way to make gnocchi.
Sweet Potato Gnocchi
1 Large sweet potato
1 egg
1-2 cups of flour
Salt and pepper.

Pierce the potato several times with a fork and cook it either in the oven or microwave until it is soft. Let it cool down (something you can do the night before if you want) and then it easily comes out of the skin.

Cut in half and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add 1 egg, salt, pepper and mix until well everything is well mixed. Add the flour, 1/2 cup at a time until a soft dough forms. Use less or more flour as needed to create the dough.

Divide the dough into balls. Roll out each ball into a 1-inch wide rope. Cut each rope into 1/2 inch pieces. Roll the gnocchi over the tines of a fork. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.

Drop the pieces into the boiling water, and allow them to cook until they float to the surface. Remove the floating pieces with a slotted spoon.

Serve with marinara, Alfredo or garlic butter sauce, top it with Parmesan cheese.
