Porcini Gnocci w/Prosciutto & Parmesan Cream

2 cups water, boiling
1 cup porcini mushrooms, (1 ounce)
2 medium Idaho Potatoes, (1 1/4 pounds)
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 large egg
2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup red onion, sliced
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
2 cups shiitake mushrooms, sliced (5 ounces)
1/4 cup parsley
1 cup white wine
1 cup reserved porcini liquid
2 cups heavy cream
2 ounces prosciutto, cut in 1" thin strip
1 cup Swiss chard leaves or spinach, chopped
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

Pour boiling water over dried porcini and soak at least 15 minutes
to reconstitute. Drain mushrooms. Strain liquid through filter
and reserve. Squeeze mushrooms until dry and puree to smooth paste.

Boil potatoes in salted water to cover until tender. While still
warm, peel potatoes and rice onto an even layer on a large cookie
sheet. Do not handle potatoes. Cool 15 minutes in refrigerator.
Heap cooled potatoes in a mound. in a well in the center add the
porcini puree, cheese, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon
pepper. Mix with fingers to form rough dough. Sprinkle flour over
dough and knead until smooth, uniformly colored, and elastic, about
8-10 minutes.

Form dough into rectangle 8x4 and slice into 8 pieces and roll each
piece into an 18 inch cylinder as think as an index finger. Cut
each cylinder into 1 1/4 inch dumplings. Shape into traditional
gnocchi crescent with ribs on one side and a slight pocket on the
other. Refrigerate on a cookie sheet until ready to cook.

Make sauce: Remove the stems from the shiitake mushrooms. Chop
stems and slice caps. Reserve separately. In half of the butter
saute the onions, garlic, mushroom stems and parsley. Cook until
wilted, about 4 minutes. Add the wine and porcini liquid. Cook
to reduce to a third of the original volume. Add the heavy cream
and boil to reduce until it coats the back of a spoon. Strain the
sauce and set aside. Saute shiitake mushroom caps in remaining
butter. Combine the cream sauce, mushrooms, prosciutto, chopped
Swiss chard and half the Parmesan cheese. Cook over medium heat
3-4 minutes and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper.
Bring 4 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon salt. Add gnocchi. As
they float to the surface, remove the gnocchi and place in a warm
dish. When the gnocchi are all cooked and drained, cover them with
the warm cream sauce. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and and the
remaining cheese.
