For the Gnocchi:2 pound Sweet Potatoes (I used two large sweet potatoes for this recipe)2/3 cup Ricotta Cheese1 1/2 tsp Salt1 tsp ground Cinnamon1/4 tsp Black Pepper1 1/4 cup Flour (+ 1/3 more for rolling dough) Preheat the oven to 425.  Prick potatoes with a fork and bake on the middle rack for 40 - 50 minutes until tender.  Allow to cool slight and scoop out potatoes from the skins and mash in a bowl.  You’ll need 2 cups, which you should be able to reach with two large potatoes.  In a bowl, mix potatoes with ricotta, salt, pepper and cinnamon until smooth.  Add flour 1/2 cup at a time to the potato mixture, forming a dough.  It will be sticky.  Lightly flour a flat work service and divide dough into six balls.  Roll balls into 1” around rope.  Cut into 1” pieces (I did mine a diagonal).  Continue the process until all gnocchi is cut.  Boil a large pot of salted water and boil gnocchi in small batches until tender (3-4 minutes).  Drain.
