This simple gnocchi needs only 4 ingredients and 40 minutes to come together. While it takes a little bit of effort to shape these fluffy pasta pillows, it will be well worth it when you take your first bite. The rich ricotta cheese adds a ton of flavor and pairs well with a variety of sauces, everything from brown butter and petso to a simple and savory tomato sauce.

Ingredients

  • 220 grams ricotta
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 200 grams flour
  • salt

Directions

  1. Mix the egg yolks and the ricotta.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour with salt, and dig a well in the center. Add the ricotta and mix until you get a smooth ball.
  3. Flour work surface.
  4. Cut the dough into pieces and roll into sausage shapes, all the same size.
  5. Flour work surface
  6. Cut the sausages into chunks, all the same size. 
  7. Roll each piece over the tines of a fork on one side, while pressing lightly with your thumb on the other side to make an indentation.
  8. Cook in a large pot of boiling salted water.
  9. When they rise to the surface, wait a few seconds, and drain.
  10. You can serve gnocchi with a little olive oil and grated parmesan, or with homemade tomato sauce (even better: a Provencal stew sauce).

I loved that just a few ingredients made such a delicious dish. These were great and so flavorful with the cheese that I dressed them with a light no-cook tomato sauce. It's a perfect dish for vegetarians.
