Ricotta Gnudi with Sauce

These football shaped gnudi’s (pronounced nudie) are little pillows of goodness. This ricotta gnudi with sauce recipe makes a wonderful light dinner or lunch meal.

Difficulty: Beginner Preparation Time: 20min

Yields: 6 Servings Total Time: 40min


  • 2 Cups Whole Milk Ricotta, strained

  • 2 Large Egg

  • ½ Cup All Purpose Flour, plus more

  • ½ Cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated

  • Kosher Salt

  • Freshly Ground Pepper


In a medium mixing bowl add egg and egg yolk, beat to blend. Add a pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper, parmesan, and ricotta. Add flour and stir until just combined (add more flour if the dough is too wet).

Add the gnudi in batches to the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked, 5-6 minutes. As the gnudi are cooking they will float to the surface, this does not mean that they are done and will need the full 5-6 minutes to cook completely through.

Place cooked gnudi on parchment paper lined half sheet and keep warm in 175F oven.

Divide among 6 bowls and sauce with marinara or brown butter.
