Ricotta Gnocchi | Flavor, NC

as seen on episode “Maple View Farm“, season 1

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups very dry ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pinch nutmeg (optional)
  • ½ cup  flour, plus more for rolling out

Preparation:
Whisk the ricotta with the egg until smooth. Add Parmesan, salt and nutmeg if using and whisk well. Add flour and fold and mix in to dough with a spatula. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and roll into a chain. Cut into small pieces and place in barely simmering water. The gnocchi will float, then let it poach for another minute. Remove gnocchi to a buttered pan, swirl over low heat. Taste. The gnocchi should be very light but still hold its shape.
