Gnudi (Ricotta Gnocchi)

Sharing is caring!

I’ve made potato-basil gnocchi before and successfully frozen it but thought I’d try the gnocchi less travelled… gnudi. Gnudi are ricotta-based gnocchi, and are usually made with spinach. However, I forgot to buy spinach and thought I’d use up some of my bumper crop of basil. These are delicate, delicious, and surprisingly easy. The recipe is very forgiving. The basil is intense and wonderful with these little cheese dumplings. I used a mix of both Genovese and Amethyst basil and the results were purple and green! Serve with butter, pesto, or chopped fresh tomatoes, capers and olives as either a main course or a side dish

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces uncooked whole wheat spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 small zucchini, sliced
  • dried oregano to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 black olives, pitted and sliced
  • 1 ounce crumbled feta cheese

Directions:

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the garlic 2 minutes. Mix in mushrooms and zucchini. Season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir in olives, and cook until heated through. Place pasta in the skillet, toss to coat, and continue cooking about 2 minutes. Top with feta cheese to serve.
