Ingredients

US|METRIC
  • 4 cups flour (sifted)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • 2 pounds ricotta
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup squash (or mashed, frozen, canned or fresh squash)
  • sauce
  • sage
  • 12 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • leaves (Several, fresh sage)
  • salt (to taste)
  • Remove All from Shopping List

    Directions

    1. Place the ricotta on a board or in a large bowl and add the squash. Add grated cheese and taste to determine if more salt is needed. Over-salt it as the salt is released into the water when cooking. However, you can’t remove salt if you have too much; add a little at a time and taste. Put the eggs in the middle of the ricotta, then begin to mix adding only enough flour as needed to form the dough into a ball.
    2. Cut off a piece of dough and make tube shaped rolls about 1/2’ thick and as long as you want. Cut them about 1/2” long. At this point, press each gnocchi over the back of a fork pressing your thumb in the middle as you roll it down the folk. This will form the grooves down the gnocchi. This step is optional. You can cut 1/2” pieces and eliminate rolling them over a folk.
    3. In a deep pan, boil salted water and cook the fettuccini. If the pasta is boxed, cook according to directions. If the pasta is fresh, it will take less than 3 minutes to cook.
