Total Time


8 ounces ricotta cheese

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon finely chopped roasted garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup all-purpose flour


1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Extra Creamy Butter

Parsley, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine ricotta cheese, egg, parsley, garlic and salt in bowl. Add 1/2 cup flour; stir until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Bring large pot of salted water to boil. Place additional flour into pie pan. Drop scant tablespoons dough into flour. Gently roll dough in flour, shaking off excess.

  3. STEP 3

    Melt butter in 12-inch skillet over low heat. Drop gnudi into boiling water; cook 3-5 minutes or until gnudi rise to top. Remove each gnudi from water as it rises; place into skillet. Increase skillet heat to medium. Cook, turning occasionally, 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

  4. STEP 4

    Place into serving dish; pour remaining butter over top. Garnish with parsley, if desired.

Tip #1

- If ricotta cheese is watery, drain in fine mesh strainer at least 30 minutes.

Tip #2

- To roast garlic, remove head of garlic, exposing cloves. Drizzle with olive oil. Wrap garlic in double layer of aluminum foil, creating pouch. Bake at 350ºF, 1 hour or until cloves are tender. Let cool. Squeeze cloves from head of garlic.
