Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 stick margarine
1/2 tsp. salt
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
7 cups flour (approximately)
1 egg
1 1/3 cups instant mashed potato flakes
2 cups boiling water


Melt margarine in microwave.

Put 6 of the 7 cups of flour in a large bowl.

Add salt, baking powder, and mashed potato flakes to flour and stir together.

Make a well in the center.

Beat egg with fork and add to cooled margarine.

Add margine/egg mixture and boiling water to well in center of flour mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon.

As dough thickens, use hands to form a ball.

If the dough is sticky, add the remaining cup of flour. You will probably need the extra flour.

Let the dough rest.

Roll dough into long snakes.

Run through cavatelli machine onto cookie sheet.

Place cookie sheet in freezer. When frozen, store cavatellis in plastic food storage bags.

To use cavatelli, boil in salted water until al dente.
