Can I Make "Gnocchi Topped Sausage Pie"?
Updated: Aug 26, 2020
I saw this in my IG feed from Twisted UK. It looked super fun! You use a string over a pot to shape the gnocchi! It also looked yummy!
This was my first attempt at making gnocchi from ricotta cheese. :) I have made gnocchi from potatoes before. That was fun too -- you can shape the gnocchi using a fork

I made a smaller version and mostly wanted to make the gnocchi -- with a string over the pot. :) I made half-batch, so half of the ingredients listed below.
Ingredients for the gnocchi:
450g ricotta cheese
30g grated parmesan
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
210g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
I mixed everything together. I used a Ziplock bag with the corner snipped to pipe and form the gnocchi. :) Here is the set up with a string over the pot. My pot only had one handle, so I secured one of the ends of the string with a binder clip. Haha! :)
I posted making the gnocchi on YT. Check it out! Super fun!
Here is the whole batch. I just cooked some sausage in the oven while I was doing the gnocchi and then I put some marinara sauce over it. Then I baked the gnocchi on top to make them nice and golden-brown.
RESULT: Success! :)
We are good at this! So light and fluffy and tasty! :) They kind of look like tater tots on top of the sausage and marinara sauce, but they are gnocchi.
I definitely think you should give it a try! It's super fun to make the gnocchi with a string over the pot and they taste good.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
