Gnocchi di Ricotta (Homemade Ricotta Gnocchi)

Learn how to make “gnocchi di ricotta” from scratch. With just a few basic ingredients (ricotta, flour, eggs and Parmesan), you can create pillowy-soft dumplings.  Unlike traditional potato gnocchi, which tend to be a bit denser, ricotta gnocchi have a lighter texture and are quicker to make.

What you'll need 

- Ricotta cheese  - Eggs - Parmesan cheese - Semolina flour - All-purpose flour 

Schritt 1 

Make the dough. Let it rest for at least one hour. Divide it into eight equal pieces. 

Schritt 2

Roll the dough pieces out in long, thin ropes. Then, using a bench scraper, cut them into small pillow-shaped gnocchi. 

Schritt 3

Lay them out in a single layer on a baking tray. Refrigerate the tray for at least two hours. This firms up the gnocchi and helps them to maintain their shape when being cooked. 

Schritt 4

Cook the gnocchi in salted, boiling water for about two minutes or until they rise to the water surface. Drain and toss them with a sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
