You deserve a treat; a real mouth-watering taste of luxury, and we think that’s what you’re in for with this rich and creamy recipe for ricotta gnocchi from Tony Fasulo, owner of southern California’s fine dining steakhouse Old Brea Chop House.
“Our ricotta gnocchi recipe is a cross between a gnudi and a gnocchi,” Fasulo says. “This dish is inspired by my Italian heritage, but with a modern and elevated twist. The use of ricotta cheese makes the gnocchi fluffier than if it’s made only with potato (the traditional way). Between the assortment of wild mushrooms, splash of Chablis and truffle butter, the dish delicately balances rich and buttery flavors, with a hint of floral and citrus.”
The ricotta is mixed with pecorino to give this gnocchi a heavenly flavor, and the mushroom truffle cream sauce is just divine. One bite of this, and you and your guests will be transported to a world of infinite delights.
