    3. Roll the dough into a long sausage shape, 2cm thick. Cut into 2cm lengths and place onto a lightly floured surface.
    4. Make the basil oil by mixing together the oil and basil. Set aside.
    5. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the gnocchi and cook for 2-3 minutes or until they float. Drain and divide between 4 heated plates/bowls. Dress with basil oil and black pepper.
