I've never made my own pasta before, but this Ricotta Gnocchi was so simple! Not only was it easy, it was delicious. After cooking the Ricotta Gnocchi, I fried it in butter and sprinkled it with Parmesan cheese. It was good, very good! It would also be fantastic in soup or with a pasta sauce.
1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl, except flour, and mix well. Add 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough is soft and sticky. Pour the dough out on a floured surface and knead in remaining 1/2 cup flour until the dough no longer sticks to your hands. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a rope that is about 1/2 inch thick. Slice into 1 inch pieces. When the water is boiling, drop the gnocchi into the water. When the gnocchi is all floating, cook for 30 more seconds. Remove gnocchi from the pot with a slotted spoon and drain in a colander.
