Goat Cheese Gnocchi Recipe

Attempting to make gnocchi at home had been on my to-do list for a long time now. Matt and I frequently buy these delicate pillows of pasta when we go out to eat, but I had been putting off preparing them at home.

I’d been assured by Giada repeatedly that making gnocchi was a breeze. It was easy for me to think, “Giada even pronounces gnocchi perfectly; of course, she thinks it’s simple!” when I saw her whip up a batch in her sunny kitchen.

So, my dears, gnocchi are, in fact, easy to pronounce and make, and I’m here to tell you that. Getting fresh gnocchi on the table doesn’t take long after you’ve mastered the procedure of boiling, mashing, cooling, and kneading.
The fork-tiniest shaping was the most time consuming, but I’m not one for making food seem pretty, so I decided to leave them as-is. Eat the food, not photograph it! Although I’m a fan of cooking, I’d rather eat.

  • Author: Mustafa Rangoonwala


  • At least 2 pounds of Russet potatoes would be best.
  • Goat cheese that weighs 11 ounces
  • Half a cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • Dried oregano (or chopped fresh oregano): 2 tablespoons (or 1/2 cups)
  • Three eggs
  • 6 quarts of all-purpose flour
  • Salt with 2 tablespoons
  • Ground black pepper to a fine powder


  1. The oven should be preheated at 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Set aside a baking sheet lined with aluminium foil.
  2. Potatoes should be washed and dried before being pierced 5-6 times with a fork. Place on the baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of the pan. A fork or knife should be able to penetrate the potatoes when they are done. Cool gently before removing it from the oven. Peel and shred the potatoes into a large mixing bowl after cooling enough to handle. Alternatively, you can use a potato ricer to do this task.
  3. Gather all of the ingredients for the dough into a large basin and begin to knead until it comes together.
  4. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is smooth. Then, using a kitchen towel, cover the dough in a giant ball or mound. Allow for a 30-minute rest period.
  5. Add salt to a big saucepan of water and bring it to a simmer. The gnocchi can be formed in the meantime. As you shape the dough, keep the kitchen towel over the rest of the dough and use about 14 cups to form a long rope about 1/2″ thick, as seen above. Cut the dough rope into 1-inch pieces with a sharp, non-serrated knife or an icing spatula. Place the pieces on a baking sheet that has been lightly dusted with flour.
  6. Place the gnocchi into the boiling water when you have a small batch ready to go (I boiled about half a cookie sheet worth). Remove with a large slotted spoon when they float to the top, about 3-5 minutes.


  • If you don’t have cake flour, subtract 2 tablespoons from each cup of all-purpose flour before adding it to the recipe.
  • If you want to see how the traditional gnocchi is made, do a Google search for “shaping gnocchi.” You’ll find lots of videos that demonstrate the traditional method.
  • Once the gnocchi has been placed in the boiling water, follow these instructions:
  • With a slotted spoon, scoop them up and drop them into a dish of ice-cold water after they have risen to the surface, which should take around 3–5 minutes. Let the gnocchi drain in a strainer and then run under cold water to stop cooking. Allow the water to drain.
  • To prevent them from sticking together, place them in a big container and drizzle them with olive oil. Continue cooking the gnocchi in this manner until all of them are tender. Keep in the fridge until you’re ready to eat.

Goat cheese gnocchi with bacon


  • 2 ounces of room temperature fresh goat cheese
  • You’ll need 4 ounces of fresh goat or cow milk for the ricotta, depending on what you find.
  • At room temperature, 2 medium-sized eggs.
  • Add additional for dusting to 1/2 to 1 cup all-purpose flour.
  • Salted kosher
  • Sauce:
  • 6 ounces of tiny diced slab bacon
  • Significant dates pitted and finely diced (approximately 1/3 cup) are needed for this recipe.
  • White wine in half a cup
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable broth
  • The butter should be unsalted.
  • Black pepper and kosher salt, freshly ground.
  • a quarter cup of finely chopped parsley


  1. A large bowl of goat cheese, ricotta, and eggs should be used to combine the ingredients. Stir in half a cup of flour and mix thoroughly. Add additional flour, 2 teaspoons at a time, until the dough is supple and smooth (not sticky). You don’t want dense tiny gnocchi, so don’t add too much flour or mix too much. Refrigerate for 30 minutes after securing the dough with plastic wrap in a bowl.
  2. A large kettle of water should be boiling at this time.
  3. Shape the dough into an 8x14x1/2-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Cut the rectangle into 1-by-1/2-inch pieces with a floured sharp knife. To shape the gnocchi, first, push one portion of it onto the back of the fork, then roll it down toward the work area to form into a dumpling, using a fork coated in flour.
  4. Use flour on your hands and fork if the dough starts to stick. Place the gnocchi on a floured cookie sheet when they are done cooking. Repeat the process with the leftover dough.
  5. Prepare an ice bath once the water has reached a rolling boil. Add salt to the already-boiling water. Using a slotted spoon, add gnocchi to a pot of boiling water and give them a brief swirl to ensure they don’t stay together.
  6. Continue to simmer for a further 1 to 2 minutes after the gnocchi has all risen to the surface, about 4 minutes total, depending on how long it takes for them to rise. Stop the gnocchi from cooking by removing them from the ice bath with a slotted spoon.
  7. Drain them when they’ve cooled down. They are now ready to be browned in the pan. Re-roll the remaining gnocchi and repeat the process.
  8. Over medium-high heat, place a nonstick saute pan. Cook the bacon until crisp; if used (the fat will start to foam when this happens). Remove the bacon from the pan and onto a paper towel-lined dish using a slotted spoon. Sear the gnocchi for 2 minutes on each side in the hot bacon grease.
  9. Serve the gnocchi on a serving dish. Pour in the dates. Stir in the wine and vegetable stock and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced by half. Add the butter and continue to whisk until smooth.
  10. Toss in the gnocchi, bacon, and seasonings to your liking before serving. In a large bowl, combine the pasta with 3 tablespoons of parsley. Serve on a dish with the remaining parsley and garnish with the lemon wedges.

  4. Set up a pot of boiling water alongside an ice-cold bowl of water.
  5. Cut the dough into 1cm thick cylinders in boiling water and slide it along a plank (shape them with a fork). Once they begin to float, remove them from heat and serve immediately. Take them out and put them in a bowl of ice water to cool them down. Repeat until the dough is gone.
    Place the gnocchi in a single layer on a baking sheet, then drizzle with olive oil.
  6. The Dish Is Done.
  7. Add a generous amount of olive oil to a nonstick frying pan and heat it at medium-high heat. Fry the gnocchi till golden.
    Place them on a paper towel to absorb any extra grease when they’re done cooking. Toss the gnocchi back into the pan with the sauce. Then, cook the mixture with a few drops of oil until it’s golden brown.
  8. Place on a new paper towel and season with salt. Stir-fry the mustard leaves in olive oil and season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  9. Poached eggs can be reheated in warm water.
  10. Goat cheese, kale sprouts, arugula, roasted mustard seeds, and optional hazelnuts can be served on top of the mixed mustard leaves. Adding honey is an option if you’d want it sweet.)
