This recipe is simple and very tasty on its own. The taste of thyme goes so well with ricotta cheese and when you combine it with a glass of white wine, well… need I say more?
Well, yeah, I do. I didn’t want to inundate you with another recipe on this blog so I have the Gnocchi recipe on my blog, theyankeechef.blogspot.com and here is the link, http://theyankeechef.blogspot.com/2012/12/gnocchisimplified.html.
1 recipe for Classic Gnocchi*
1 stick butter or margarine
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, minced
Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat until light brown in color, about 5-6 minutes. Add the Parmesan cheese and thyme leaves and stir. Add the gnocchi, toss and continue cooking until gnocchi is heated through, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.
*Only boil 1 pound of potatoes to the gnocchi recipe on my other blog, and mash. When ready to combine all gnocchi ingredients, add 2 cups ricotta cheese. You may need an extra 1/2 cup flour, depending on the dryness of the ricotta cheese.
Serves about 5.
