Homemade Gnocchi! November 2, 2009

476 (Small)If there is one thing I love, it is gnocchi – and especially if it is homemade!ย  There is nothing more dissapointing than ordering it in the restaraunt , and then finding out that it is frozen ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  This was so easy ( even easier than regular homemade pasta ) , and it is the ricotta cheese version , not the potato kind… will tackle that another time!ย  This made alot, so I got to freeze alot – which makes me happy ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I served it with homemade pesto, fresh tomatoes, and sliced rotesserie chicken from the supermarket – it was fabulous!

Ingredients:

2 cups ricotta
2 eggs, beaten
4 cups flour
salt and pepper
more flour for rolling

Combine the ricotta with the beaten eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Gradually mix in the flour until it forms a thick dough.
Flour your working surface and roll the dough out to about 1 in thick. Then with a knife or a pizza cutter cut the flattened dough into 1 in wide strips, then cut into 1 inch cubes

You can either thumbprint them or you can roll an indentation on them using the back of a fork. Place the gnocchi on a baking sheet in a single layer -, so they don’t stick. ย Refrigerate covered until you’re ready to boil them. Prepare a pot of salted water to boil. Once boiling , place gnocchi in water, and let them go for 8-10 minutes or until they float!

  1. My boyfriend and I made our own gnocchi a couple of times this fall (pumpkin gnocchi, butternut squash gnocchi…) and even though it didn’t come out perfectly, it was so much fun to make. We will never buy packaged gnocchi again, and we will definitely have to try your ricotta gnocchi next time!

    Oh my god. That sounds amazing. I adore gnocchi. I will have to try this, I’ve never made my own before.
