step one: cook your sweet potato in salted boiling water for 20-25 minutes or until soft.

step two: scoop the flesh of the sweet potato in a large bowl. add the flour, ricotta cheese, salt & pepper and mix until a dough starts to form. knead the dough for an additional 5 minutes until it becomes easy to handle. 

step three: roll and stretch out the dough. cut into equal 1-inch pieces. 

step four: bring a large pot of water to a boil, cook your gnocchi until they rise to the top of the pot.

step five: once cooked, add 2 tbsp of olive oil to a pan and pan-sear your gnocchi for 2 minutes on each side. add the cream, garlic, and rosemary and let cook for 10 minutes. toss the gnocchi a few times to mix well with the sauce.
