Ricotta Gnocchi

Here is the easiest recipe you will come across for Ricotta Gnocchi. The following recipe is the whole recipe but I only made half. There was easily enough gnocchi to feed four people. You serve it with your favorite sauce (we chose a vodka sauce) and the gnocchi honestly taste like the filling of stuffed shells. Delicious!

3/4 cup flour
1 egg
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 container of ricotta cheese (16 ounces)

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl.

If it's really sticky, add tablespoons of flour. It should be a little sticky, but not gooey. Refrigerate it for about 20 minutes, until it's more workable.

Meanwhile boil salted water. 

Break the mixture into 4 pieces and roll each one out into a tube shape about 3/4" thick. Use a sharp knife to cut it into 1-inch pieces. At this point you can freeze some if you want by laying it on a sheet and sticking it in the freezer until it's frozen, then removing and placing in a ziploc.

Place in boiling water and cook the gnocchi until they bob to the surface, then for another few minutes.

Serve with your favorite sauce and enjoy!
