Gnocchi with Kale and Spinach

My next testing is with Kale powder and processed fresh spinach mixed in Gnocchi ingredients. 
The classic potato gnocchi can be found at:

Ingredients for the Gnocchi:
2 Idaho potatoes  << I used 4 Golden Potatoes - boiled and peeled while warm
1 1/2 to 2 cups organic all-purpose flour
3 large organic eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil
6 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (Choose your favorite: oregano, parsley, basil)
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons toasted bread crumbs
2 tablespoons Organic Kale Powder

Cut peeled potatoes into large chunks that would fit into Ricer.   Process all potatoes.  Combine potatoes with 1-1/2 C flour in a mixing bowl or on a work surface.  Forming a volcano and add one egg at a time and mix until well blended with flour and repeat with the rest of the egg.  Knead.  Rest for 15 minutes. .  The dough is slightly sticky.  Follow the rest of the instruction to portion the kneaded dough.  Roll into 1 inch diam ropes. Then, Cut into 1-inch pieces.  Place on a flour-dusted baking sheet and store in the freezer.  Or cook in a pot of boiling water.   When the Gnocchi float to the surface, cook one more minute.  Strain.
Mix in with sauce.  Heat through for a minute or two in the sauce, then, serve.
