  1. Work with one portion of the dough at a time and roll it into a long strip.
  2. Use a knife to cut the strip into small rectangles. You can keep them as is or add a decorative pattern by rolling each rectangle on the back of a fork.
  3. In the meantime, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Gently place the gnocchi into the boiling water in batches and cook for 2-3 min, or until they float to the surface. Drain them well.
  4. To serve, heat up butter and fresh rosemary sprigs in a skillet. Then, add the gnocchi and cook for a few minutes until they become lightly browned.
  5. Serve the gnocchi warm with Parmesan cheese and fresh rosemary. Enjoy!
