The potato dumplings are of pillowy texture and fried to perfection with tasty sauces.The cheese adds a nice twist and improves the taste. With available ingredients a little muscle of yours to work you can create a wonderful recipe. I have made this with white sauce, but can try with tomato or pesto sauce as well. This can grace any occasion and will be the star attraction in your menu, if you are throwing a party. My daughter is very fond of Italian food and it was she who made be do this and helped a lot in the whole process of creating this recipe.

Some add eggs to the dough, but being a strict vegetarian I have avoided it. Regarding cheese you can add any variety of your choice tough parmesan cheese tastes best. Also I have made this with homemade White Pasta Sauce, but you can make this from my blog or can buy store bought one. The original recipe calls for baking the potatoes, but I made this easier and quicker by boiling them followed by mashing and mixing and later boiling them again. The recipe was very easier  than I thought and I want to make the tomato sauce version soon. And yes, If you thick this would be heavy or make you fat then you are wrong. This is soft, melt in the mouth and super fluffy. Potatoes also contain starch that your body needs and thiamine too. So to please your family try this exciting recipe with creamy cheese and added Italian herbs. They will fancy this and be proud of your achievement in International cuisine.
