  • About


  • 2 c (490 g) whole-milk ricotta
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c (100 g) grated Parmesan
  • 1 c (125 g) flour
  • pinch of salt


Mix in a bowl to form a dough. If it feels too sticky to roll into a log, add a bit more flour.

roll the dough into a log & slice into 1-in (2½-cm) pieces

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil & cook the gnocchi in batches, waiting until they float (about 3 min). Meanwhile, melt 2 T butter in a pan. Drain the gnocchi, pat them dry & transfer to the pan & cook until browned, turning a couple times. Enjoy them right away, sprinkled with olive oil, chopped chives, salt & pepper, or your favorite sauce.
