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.

Semolina and wheat flour combine with other ingredients like egg and cheese and breadcrumbs or cornmeal to form small dough lumps.

Goat cheese gnocchi with bacon



  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.

Goat cheese potato gnocchi



  1. Prepare the Gnocchi and Potatoes according to the package directions.
  2. Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Set aside to cool somewhat after straining and pureeing.
  3. Make a smooth dough by grating the goat’s cheese, measuring the other ingredients, and combining them with the potato puree in a saucepan over medium heat.
  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.)
