Ricotta Gnocchi

2 pounds ricotta
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
4 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional if required

In large bowl combine ricotta, egg and salt.

Mix together. Add flour and mix dough with hands, until dough is not too sticky and can be rolled into a rope.

Let rest for about 15 minutes covered with bowl over dough.

Cut off a piece of dough to roll in ropelike form about size of finger.

Cut rope into 1" pieces and roll under tines of a fork or a butter paddle to create ridges.

Lightly flour formed gnocchi to prevent sticking.

Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook gnocchi in small batches.

Gnocchi are done when they rise to the surface. Remove cooked gnocchi to a warm platter (do not rinse).

Serve with your favorite tomato sauce.
