These "dumplings" are easy to put together once you get the feel for them. Got this recipe from a cooking show on the radio "Melinda Lee". Hope you enjoy

Delicous-with a capital D! I loved these! I made them just like you said to, but did use my own homemade marinara sauce. I'm having them for breakfast tomorrow without pasta! I can't wait to make these for my vegetarian, ricotta-loving daughters!
