Gnocchi alla Romana

Gnocchi alla Romana

Ingredients :

3 cups low sodium chicken stock

3/4 cup semolina flour

1 large egg

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, optional

(makes 4 to 6 servings)

Directions :

Lightly oil a small baking sheet.

Whisk the stock, semolina flour, and salt in a heavy medium saucepan over medium-high heat until the mixture bubbles and is very thick, about 10 minutes.

Beat the egg in a large bowl.

Gradually beat the semolina mixture into the egg.

Transfer the gnocchi mixture to the prepared baking sheet, spreading it to form a 1/2-inch-thick layer.

Cover and refrigerate until the gnocchi mixture is cold and firm, at least 1 hour.

Preheat the broiler.

Generously butter a 10-inch-diameter gratin dish.

Using a 2-inch-diameter cookie cutter, cut out rounds from the gnocchi mixture.

Arrange the gnocchi in the prepared baking/gratin dish, overlapping slightly.

Brush the remaining butter over the gnocchi.

Sprinkle with the cheese, and pepper, if desired.

Broil until the gnocchi are heated through and beginning to brown, about 6 minutes.

Note :

Tried this for the first time tonight with dinner, it was very nice and really easy to make!

One thing I would change is that I would actually lightly fry them before putting them under the broiler with the cheese to give it a crunchier outside texture.

The other thing I did to reduce waste was that instead of a circular cookie cutter I just cut them into squares.

It worked well and no waste.

I think this stuff is divine. So incredibly creamy inside. A big hit here.

I would serve them again for appetizers at a party too!!

Please not this is based on everyday Italian food network recipe.

Life is too short for bad BBQ
