Hands up who’s never tasted a plate of gnocchi? Gnocchi (or dumplings) are one of the best-known foods around the world as they're very easy to make. They have lots of different names and are made using a variety of flours: wheat, semolina and vegetables, although probably the most famous ones are those made with potatoes.
For this recipe we travelled to Castiglione della Pescaia, in the Maremma area, home to important cattle breeds and fine cheeses, so we will prepare our gnocchi with fresh ricotta cheese. For a perfect colour contrast, we’ll make some tomato gnocchi and season it all with a sauce made with fried zucchini and a little Parmesan broth.
Green, white and red... a very patriotic, colourful and simple dish (a little bit long-winded if you decide to make both types of gnocchi), a mix of local flavours, a work of alchemy by the chef Alessia Morabito.
