DIRECTIONS

  • In large saucepan, cook sweet potatoes, covered, in enough boiling salted water to cover for 25-35 minutes (until tender).
  • Drain well; return to same pan. Over low heat, mash potatoes until smooth allowing any extra moisture to evaporate.
  • Transfer potatoes to a large bowl. Stir in ricotta cheese, salt, nutmeg, and 1.5 cups of flour.
  • On a well-floured surface, knead in the remaining .5 cup flour, kneading for 2-3 minutes or until a soft dough ball is formed.
  • Divide into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a 12" long log (1" in diameter).
  • Cut into 1" pieces & w/ a floured finger, make a dimple in the center of each piece.
  • Boil a large pot of salted water. Cook gnocchi, in small batches for 3-4 minutes, or until they float to surface of water (Careful not to overcook).
  • Remove w/ skimmer or slotted spoon & drain on paper towels or tea towel.
  • Cover to warm while making rest of gnocchi.
