  • 1 Cup boiling water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 Cup Bisquick
  • 1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pasta sauce

Directions

Place potato flakes in a large bowl. Stir in boiling water; add egg. Stir in Bisquick and seasonings. 

On a lightly floured surface, knead 10-12 times, forming a soft dough. 

Divide dough into four portions.

On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 1/2-inch-thick rope; cut into 3/4-inch pieces. Press and roll each piece with a lightly floured fork.

Remove with a slotted spoon. Serve with your favorite pasta sauce and grated Parmesan cheese.
