This is a really soothing example of ultimate Roman comfort food. Circles of cooked semolina are luxuriously coated with butter and Parmesan cheese, then baked until golden. It makes a perfect supper dish for children, as it is delicate in flavour and sustaining. Alternatively, it can be served as a simple primo when preceding a very spicy or full-flavoured main course. Semolina gnocchi is also tasty served with a punchy green salad as a lunch dish.
You can ring the changes and spice up this basic dish with the addition of extra ingredients. Try adding saffron, flaked cooked fish, chopped prosciutto, salami or Gorgonzola.
