My daughter, Jessica was turning 20 and requested this meal for her birthday dinner. I'd made it a couple of times and we fell in love with the flavours, so when she put in her request, I was a meal just for the girls, I probably would have stuck with just making the gnudi, but I had a man in the mix so I decided to complement the dish with a beautiful sage and garlic marinated pork tenderloin.
From 3 yrs (in purple below) to 20 yrs, in a blink!
Let's make Gnudi
I followed the recipe from Chef Steps and added a little extra from an earlier recipe I've used but is no longer available. Don't be afraid to make either Gnocchi or Gnudi, it's simple, enjoyable and not too messy. Your guests will be amazed by the fresh and flavour bursting dish you serve them.
A choice between Ricotta or Potato (even Sweet Potato)
I've made it with potato and sweet potato and enjoyed both, but I did find the sweet potato a little rich. This time I decided to use Ricotta, thus the gnudi version. It didn't disappoint.
Gnudi rolled, cut and ready to be boiled
Drop them into a pot of boiling water then saute
A birthday is never complete without
All things cooking, from simple and clean to gourmet and exotic (and everything in between) have been my passion for over 30 years. Since discovering Pinterest, I pretty much exclusively cook from the recipes I PIN. My saying is, "if you can PIN it, you can cook it". I love to PIN recipes and I love to cook. I thought, why not blog the recipes I make from my Pinterest food boards. I'm the self-declared, Pincook.
