I made the Ricotta Gnocchi tonight for dinner for my family. The gnocchi was very easy to put together, as was the gravy (red sauce). Although, with the gravy, I did add a small onion and a can of diced tomatoes. My twin 5 year old grandsons do not like gravy but do like Alfredo sauce. I doubled the recipe of the gnocchi because of doing one dish with gravy and another with the Alfredo. The gnocchi, I added about 5 tablespoons of flour before I put it in the fridge to rest for at least 15 minutes. It was perfect when I was ready to roll the logs of pasta before cutting it into its 1 inch pieces. It was very easy to cook, as it only took minutes to do so. I placed half of the gnocchi one bowl, and the other half in another bowl and then spooned the gravy into one bowl and Alfredo into the other.
My husband, our daughter, her husband had both dishes of the gnocchi, the twins only had it with the Alfredo, and I had it with the gravy. The gnocchi looked heavy like a dumpling after it was cooked, so I wasn't sure what it was going to be like... truly, I was anticipating a heavy gnocchi. But, to my surprise, it was very light! It was such a delightful surprise and an awesome and wonderful dish. Even my picky grandsons liked it. My step daughter wants me to fix it again. I sent all the leftovers home with her so that they can either get lunch or dinner out of the leftovers tomorrow.
If you've never made homemade pasta because you were afraid to, this is the recipe for you to try.
