Thermomix Ricotta Gnocchi

Sorry it has been so long between posts but this recipe is worth the wait! We were lucky enough to have the gorgeous Jan Fozard come along and inspire us all at our West Coast Thermomix Branch Meeting earlier this month. Jan is an Ambassador of Thermomix and I was lucky enough to have her as a member of our team. Jan is a creative cook and puts love and life into everything she does. Thank you Jan for allowing me to share your beautiful recipe with everyone. This dish is simple to prepare but tastes amazing, so amazing that this one will be part of our Christmas menu (what do you think Mum?!). Even better is that you can make your own Ricotta simply and easily as well….stay tuned for the next post for that recipe!

This is the basic Gnocchi recipe but this can be dressed up in oh so many ways…with a simple tomato sauce, with a pesto stirred through or with salad ingredients. We served our Ricotta Gnocchi with a melody of tomatoes, bocchini cheese and basil oil. Simply delish!


Ricotta Gnocchi

80 g Parmesan cheese cubed
230 g baker’s flour
450 g drained ricotta cheese
Pinch salt
Pinch nutmeg

TM31 Method

1. Place Parmesan into TM bowl and mill for 10
seconds on speed 9.
2. Add remaining ingredients to TM bowl and with dial set to closed lid position, knead for 1
minute on Interval speed.
3. Turnout onto floured ThermoMat and divide into 5 equal portions.
4. Roll
each portion into a long ‘snake’ and cut into equal sized pieces. You can cook them at this point, or roll them down gnocchi board to create ridges.
5. Cook gnocchi in a pot of salted boiling water. (Do not add gnocchi until water has reached a rolling boil.)
6. When they rise to the surface, they are cooked. Remove, drain and add sauce of choice.

I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we all did.

    Wow! Never again would I bother making potato gnocchi. So quick and easy, and very little mess. Were absolutely delicious, thank you.

  3. Ebony says:

    This is one of absolute favourites. Incredibly easy and delicious. There are never left overs when I make this. Thanks for sharing xx

    • Thank you for your kind comments Ebony! I love this recipe too. It looks so special and I love the fact that everything is made from scratch, including the ricotta! Loving your ThermOMG Facebook page and blog more and more every day….you girls rock!!! xx

  4. Ally says:

    Hi Simone, can GF flour be substituted for bakers flour in this recipe? Thanks.

  5. Terri says:

    This is a staple in our house, with Aldi GF flour. The kids help to roll it out, so it’s a perfect wet weather day activity. The 2 yr old eats the raw dough!

    I was really looking forward to making gnocchi after making my own ricotta in my thermomix.
    The only problem was I found it crumbled. What did I do wrong? No egg in this to bind it together?
    I ended up adding some egg to keep it together but I think because I had to knead it again, they were a little rubbery. Feeling disappointed. 😦

    • Mmmm sorry however I am not sure I have any suggestions for you Alison. I have made this gnocchi with homemade ricotta several times with success. Hopefully somebody on this page will be able to answer for you otherwise perhaps some of the bigger Thermomix Facebook sites might be able to offer some suggestion? Hopefully it was only a minor step that went wrong and the next time will be perfect! Cheers, Simone x
