      Well, my first batch wasn't perfect, but my second batch turned out pretty well. Make sure when you put the gnudi into the water, you place each one on a slotted spoon and lower it to the bottom of the pot. The first round, I gently placed them on top of the water, and they disintegrated while falling to the bottom. So, I ate the gnudi mush and DH ate the nicely formed ones. Their texture is much better when they stay formed... They are kind of like ravioli without the pasta shell.

      This recipe was a flop for me. I followed the recipe exactly. I just watched Giada do this on Food Network the other week. She said measure everything out exact. My gnudi disintegrated in the hot water. I was so annoyed. I may try this again sometime. But maybe putting them in the water differently.

      These tasted pretty good though not great, I may try to make them again with a few adjustments. Putting the dough in the fridge proved very helpful. The previous reviews, particularly BadgerLuv's, was helpful to get them down in to the boiling water properly.
