GNOCCHI – THREE WAYS

Gnocchi – the staple Italian dish which can be done many different ways. We’ve put together three different recipes which we believe will bring the best out in the Gnocchi. We’ve got Brown Butter Sauce, Marinara, and Alfredo Sauce. We would recommend you use Nonna’s Marinara and our own Alfredo Sauce recipes for those options. Make one of these three today. We think you’ll love them as much as we do!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE GNOCCHI
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1 cup powdered Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 3 large egg yolks

  • 4 cups chicken bone broth

  • FOR THE BROWN BUTTER SAUCE (OPTION 1)
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter

  • 1 tsp chopped fresh oregano or sage

  • FOR THE MARINARA (OPTION 2)
  • 2 cups Marinara sauce, warmed

  • FOR THE ALFREDO SAUCE (OPTION 3)
  • 1 batch Alfredo Sauce

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
  • Combine the mozzarella, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder in a large heatproof mixing bowl. Bake for 10 minutes (or microwave for 1 to 2 minutes) or until the cheese is melted. To combine, stir everything together thoroughly. Mix in the egg yolks using a hand mixer until smooth.
  • Divide the dough into three equal parts. Roll each ball into a log about 3/4 inch thick and 2 feet long on a clean work surface with your hands. Cut the dough into 34 1-inch pieces with a knife.
  • In a large pot, bring the broth to a boil. Meanwhile, make indentations with a fork on each piece of dough to resemble traditional gnocchi. Drop the gnocchi gently into the boiling broth and cook for 1 minute, or until they float. With a slotted spoon, remove the gnocchi from the pot and place them on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain briefly.
  • To make the brown butter sauce, in a small skillet over medium-high heat, heat the butter, oregano, and salt, stirring constantly, until brown flecks appear, about 4 minutes.
  • To serve, place the drained gnocchi on a platter and top with your preferred sauce.
