Ricotta Gnudi

READY IN: 2hrs 8mins
Recipe by Jules127

This was getting raves on epicurious--tender fresh pillows of ricotta pasta--like gnocchi but made with ricotta instead of potatoes. They're time consuming but I thought it was worth it! It would save time to make thick ropes, half them lengthwise, half again and make interval cuts. From Bon Appetit.

This is a good recipe for making the dough, but there are no directions for forming the shape. Luckily, my husband knows everything. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
