Ricotta Gnocchi with meatless Bolognese sauce

Ricotta Gnocchi with meatless Bolognese sauce

Gnocchi are soft pillows of mashed potatoes mixed with flour but in modern times there are many different varieties of gnocchi substituting or adding to the potatoes other vegetables such as pumpkin, carrot, spinach, etc.

Ricotta Gnocchi are another variety which substitute the potatoes with Ricotta cheese instead of a vegetable. Thanks to the flour and eggs which hold the gnocchi together, you’ll have soft and creamy gnocchi which you can serve with tomato sauces or the classic butter and sage.
