Herb Gnocchi W/ Mushroom Cream Sauce

“This is a recipe from Danny Boone but i've tweeked it just a bit. Its very easy to make, but very time consuming. The dish is VERY filling so do not be discouraged by the portions, its extremy filling. I made it once for my mom on mother's day and a week later for my brother one what is now known as 'brother's day'... hope you enjoy it!”

  1. Place whole unpeeled potatoes into a medium saucepan with cold water on medium heat.
  2. Bring the potatoes to a boil and cook for 20 to 25 minutes until soft enough to mash.
  3. Check with a knife to see if potatoes are cooked through and tender (they'll still be a lil hard, you don't want them cooked all the way through).
  4. Once ready drain the potatoes.
  5. When cool enough to handle peel each potato and mash.
  6. Add the 1/2 the flour, 1/2 the Parmesan, both egg yolks, all the nutmeg, thyme, salt and pepper
  7. Mix into a doughy consistency adding more flour as needed.
  8. Transfer dough to a well floured surface.
  9. Roll pieces of the dough into a rope about 1/2-inch in diameter.
  10. With a knife cut the rope into 1/2 to 3/4-inch-long pieces.
  11. Flour the pieces as you cut them placing them on a floured baking sheet tray or lined with wax paper.
  12. Place the gnocchi in the refrigerator covered with plastic wrap for 1 hour.
  13. When ready to cook place gnocchi in boiling salted water for about 1 to 2 minutes (They will rise to the top when done).
  14. Using a slotted spoon remove gnocchi from pot and place into ice water bath to stop cooking.
  15. For the sauce
