Gnocchi alla Ricotta More Recipes Like This

Ingredients: Metric Units
1 pound ricotta cheese (or cottage cheese will do in a pinch)
2 cups sifted four
3 eggs
1 Tablespoon melted butter (NO MARGARINE)
1 cup fresh-grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup melted browned butter
Drain the cheese, pressing out as much liquid as possible. Force the cheese through a sieve. Work in the flour, eggs and the regular melted butter, then half the Parmesan cheese. Knead until a dough is formed (if too soft, add a little more flour). Cover with a bowl and let stand 1 hour. Form into finger-thick rolls and cut in 1 inch lengths. Cook in boiling salted water 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Drizzle with the browned butter and the remaining Parmesan cheese. Enjoy! -Diana
