Ricotta gnocchi


For the gnocchi

  • In a bowl add the ricotta cheese, the nutmeg, salt, pepper, the egg yolk, and mix very well with a silicone spatula until the ingredients are homogenized. Ideally, you should leave the ricotta to drain overnight in a strainer.
  • Add the flour, the parmesan, and mix well.
  • Transfer to a pastry bag. Dust your kitchen counter with flour and make some strips with the dough.
  • Cut the dough into 1 cm gnocchi and make sure they are covered with the flour.
  • In a pot with boiling water, add some salt and the gnocchi. Once they rise to the surface, boil them for about 1 minute and remove them with a slotted spoon. If you want to store them in the refrigerator, transfer the gnocchi to a bowl with cold water, drain them, and put them in a baking pan with olive oil.

For the sauce

  • Place a frying pan over high heat.
  • Add the whole cloves of garlic, the thyme finely chopped, the heavy cream, and boil for 2-3 minutes until the cream is reduced.
  • Add the gnocchi from the pot, stir for 1 minute, and remove from the heat.
  • Add the parmesan, pepper, and mix.
  • Serve with parmesan and pepper.
