Ingredients

MOREL SAUCE

Directions

Place Parmigiano-Reggiano, ricotta and egg in bowl section of food processor. Mix until smooth. Put 3/4 cup of flour into a separate bowl and fold in cheese mixture. Knead all together until fully incorporated, being sure not to over-knead. If mixture becomes gummy, you have gone too far.

Liberally dust the table top and your hands using 1/2 cup flour. Divide the gnocchi mixture into 8 equal pieces. Using your hands, roll each piece into a cylinder 1/2 inch in diameter, dusting with additional flour as needed.

Cut cylinders into 1 inch long pieces and place on a parchment-lined sheet pan that has been dusted with flour. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Fill a large bowl with ice and water. Use this as a bath to shock the gnocchi after cooking.

Bring 1 gallon of salted water to a boil. Add half the gnocchi, cover pot, and boil until gnocchi rise to the top (approximately 3 minutes). Remove immediately with a slotted spoon and place in the ice water bath. Repeat process with remaining gnocchi.

When gnocchi have cooled, remove from water and place in non-reactive pan. Coat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and refrigerate.

To serve, reheat gnocchi in a large pot of boiling water for 1 minute and serve with morel or your favorite sauce and garnish.

MOREL SAUCE

Season with salt and pepper.;
