|2¼ pounds||Mealy (idaho or baking) potatoes|
|1¾ cup||Flour (divided use)|
|1 teaspoon||Salt or to taste|
In a large saucepan, cook potatoes in their skins in boiling water until very tender. Drain, peel and mash.
In a bowl, combine the mashed potatoes with half the flour and the egg yolks. Add salt and season to taste. Knead mixture until a firm, smooth dough is formed.
Divide the dough into pieces. Coat hands well with flour and roll each piece into a narrow sausage shape on a surface sprinkled with most of the remaining flour. Cut these into sections about 1¼-inches long. Roll each section on the prongs of a fork while pressing lightly with your thumb to form a shape similar to seashell pasta.
Drop the shaped dumplings onto a well-floured board. At this point, they can be kept for a couple of hours at room temperature.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the dumplings a few at a time and remove them with a slotted spoon as soon as they rise to the surface. Place in a warm serving bowl. Pour tomato sauce over and serve at once. Makes 6 servings.
