We Love Gnocchi
Ricotta gnocchi is a favorite at our house. Who knew it was so easy to make. In fact, Phoebe is going to show you how. Here's how we do it:
2 cups of all-purpose flour
2 cups (or 1 small tub) of ricotta
Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Mix up the ingredients in a bowl. It gets pretty sticky, but will come together in a ball.
1. On a floured board, break off small chunks of the dough and roll them into a medium/skinny log.
2. Cut the log into about 1 inch pieces.
3. Press the pieces gently with a fork.
Now, you have gnocchi! Boil them in small batches - you want them to have lots of room to boil. When they rise to the top and are floating around up there, you know you're done.
Brown about 2 or 3 Tablespoons of butter in a large skillet.
As soon as it begins to brown, add some salt and pepper to taste.
Then toss in some chopped up sage leaves (about 4 or 5 large leaves) and your gnocchi. Cook until the gnocchi is heated through and gets a little crispy on the outside.
Top with grated parmesan. Eat!
