Cheat’s Ricotta Gnocchi



  • 360g ricotta
  • 80g parmesan, grated
  • 150g flour
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp each chopped basil, thyme, and parsley
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 60ml olive oil
  • 3 sliced cloves of garlic
  • 600g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Black pepper
  • 2 tbsp basil, to serve
  • Put the ricotta, flour, eggs, some pepper, and the parmesan in a bowl, and mix to form a sticky dough. Mix in the herbs and lemon zest, then flour a work surface and roll the dough into two logs, about 3cm wide. Slice into 2cm pieces, and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan, and add the garlic and tomatoes. Fry for 5 minutes to soften. Meanwhile, cook the gnocchi in a large pot of boiling salted water, for 3 minutes or until they have risen to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon, toss in the tomato mixture, and serve with more parmesan and basil.
