Gnudi (Ricotta Gnocchi)
Ingredients45 m servings 270
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add basil and cook uncovered until just wilted, about 1 minute. Immerse in ice water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain. Squeeze very dry and finely chop.
- Mix ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup flour, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, egg yolks, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Add basil, white pepper, and salt; mix until gnudi mixture is well-combined.
- Dust your hands with remaining 1/4 cup flour and form gnudi mixture into small balls.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add lemon juice. Boil gnudi in batches until they float to the top of the water, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.
- Cook's Notes:
- The boiling water may require skimming and you may need to add additional water.
- Basil may brown as it boils so don't be surprised if the water turns slightly brown. The gnudi do not turn brown, just the water.
