A good potato gnocchi is as much about the potato as anything else. So using a good quality potato, baking it and then shaping them may seem like a lot of work but the end result is simply amazing.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up WHAT TO DO For the gnocchi4 baked potatoes2 eggs150g flourPinch of salt and nutmeg (it works)For the sauce1 punnet of cherry tomatoesfresh basil – it’ll be foreign, but worth itparmesan cheese1 finely diced onion 2 cloves of garlicA light squeeze of tomato pureeOlive oilA little knob of butterWHAT TO DOFirst off, you must bake the potatoes, I find that baking them makes for a better result in my opinion. Also, I will say that there are several very good pre-made options out there and for those of you caught for time, they are perfectly acceptable to offer. Making your own gnocchi is something, like many of the Italian classics, that you must do at least once. Once the potatoes are baked, scoop the white flesh out of the skins and add the eggs and flour to a bowl and combine with the salt and the nutmeg. Shape into a long cylinder and cut them to small bite sized pieces. You can roll them into oblong shapes for that authentic feel and look. They will only take a few minutes to cook so have a pan of salted boiling water ready to cook them as they will only take three minutes to bring back to life. Meantime, get the sauce on by sweating the onion and the garlic in a pan with a little olive oil and butter. Add the cherry tomatoes and a little cup of water with the tomato puree. Some pasatta will suffice also. A sprinkle of sugar is an optional extra if you want to lift the sweetness. Allow that to reduce and let the tomato-ness shine through. Drop the gnocchi into the salted boiling water and once they have floated to the top, remove them and combine with the sauce. Top with some shredded basil and grated parmesan cheese. last_img read more

GE’s $1.5B DOJ Subprime Settlement

The failure to disclose material deficiencies in those loans contributed to the financial crisis,” Justice Department Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt said in a statement.“As today’s resolution demonstrates, the Department of Justice will continue to employ FIRREA as a powerful tool for protecting our financial markets against fraud,” Hunt continued.“This settlement contains no admission of any allegations and concludes the FIRREA investigation of WMC,” a GE spokesperson said in a statement to CNBC. “This is another step in our ongoing efforts to de-risk GE Capital. This agreement represents a significant part of the total legacy exposure associated with WMC and we are pleased to put this matter behind us.”According to the DOJ, WMC originated more than $65 billion dollars in mortgage loans between 2005 and 2007. According to a member of GE’s Corporate Audit Staff (CAS) involved in audits of WMC observed in April 2007, WMC “jacked up volume without controls,” leading to WMC receiving more mortgage applications containing fraud or other defects than its competitors.The DOJ alleges that by late 2005 and early 2006, investment banks were kicking out more of WMC’s loans than ever, and after a review in March 2006, WMC found that 78 percent of the loan files reviewed contained at least one piece of false information.
