    Making restaurant-quality ricotta gnocchi is easy to do at home. You can make the dough in under twenty minutes then cook or freeze for later. Directions for making the dough, cooking gnocchi, and freezing are all shown below. There are lots of ways to serve ricotta gnocchi. It’s excellent plain tossed with a little olive oil, parmesan cheese, and herbs. Our favorite way to serve it is to add a buttery crust and toss with a light marinara sauce. We have shared how to do this below.
