Come On Up To The House

Roman Style Gnocchi

I had never heard of these before and saw something on tv that a chef was making them. So here is my first try at these puppies.

Roman Style Gnocchi

3 cups 2%milk
1 cup semolina
1 tsp kosher salt
1 cup parmesan
4 egg yolks
2 tbsp butter

In a sauce pan, bring the milk, butter and salt to a simmer, just bubbling along the sides of the pan on medium low heat. Slowly add the semolina to the pan while whisking. Keep whisking until hard thickened. Switch to a wooden spoon and mix in 1/2 cup shredded parmesan. Take off of the heat and add one egg yolk at a time until all four have been mixed in thoroughly. With a half cup measuring cup – wet in between using to measure out the gnocchi onto a baking sheet. Transfer each gnocchi to a buttered baking dish layering. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan onto the gnocchi and bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until browned.

I made a tomato sauce to serve over these. They were delicious.
