Boil some water in a large saucepan and add a bit of salt. (approx 1 Tbsp). Pre-heat the oven at 200 C (390 F). Take an oven safe tray and grease it with a little bit of oil.
With a spoon, gather a bit of the compost, as much as to make a 4cm2 minutes starting counting from when the water is boiling again. Arrange them into your tray and continue boiling gnocchi until the dough is finished.
