Also known as gnudi, these italian-style ricotta dumplings are little pillows of dough that have a supple texture once cooked. They are often boiled in a pot of salted water, similar to gnocchi, but here they are simmered in the same seasoned tomato sauce they'll be served with. When mixing the dough for the dumplings, add just enough breadcrumbs to bind the ingredients; how much you need will depend on the moisture level of the ricotta.

Ingredients

  • 500 grams ricotta cheese
  • 150 grams breadcrumbs (this depends on the consistency of the ricotta cheese)
  • 200 grams grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • ground nutmeg (as needed)
  • 1 bottle tomato puree
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 carrot
  • basil

Directions

  1. Combine the ricotta cheese with the breadcrumbs and the egg, add the parmesan cheese, a pinch of salt, the nutmeg, and a generous amount of chopped basil.
  2. Combine until the mixture is creamy but thick.
  3. Saute the chopped onion, celery and carrot in a large pan.
  4. Add the tomato puree.
  5. With wet hands, shape the ricotta mixture into balls approximately 3 centimeters in diameter and place them into the pan where the sauce is cooking.
  6. Cover with a lid and cook on medium low heat for 30 to 35 minutes, gently shake the pan occasionally and, if necessary, add a little water to the sauce.
