Ricotta Dumplings - Dunderi Recipe
Geege Schuman stashed this in Yum
Ricotta dumplings are... Ravioli?
More like gnocchi.
I thought gnocchi have to be made of potato?
Today we learned gnocchi (/ ˈ n ʲ ɒ k i / n(y)ok-ee, also US / ˈ n j oʊ k i /, nyoh-kee; Italian: [ˈɲɔkki], singular gnocco) are various thick, soft dough dumplings that may be made from semolina, ordinary wheat flour, egg, cheese, potato, breadcrumbs, or similar ingredients.  
Like many Italian dishes, there is considerable variation in recipes and names across different regions. For example, the Tuscan malfatti (literally "poorly made") are a sort of flour, ricotta, and spinach gnocchi; the Pugliese cavatielli are flour-based, gnudi have much less flour, and so on.
LOL that the "poorly made" gnocchi have ricotti in them.
So the difference between gnocchi and ravioli is consistency?
Gnocchi are worked a lot less than ravioli. In terms of refinement, gnocchi are like biscuits and ravioli are like croissant.
Ah! All are variations on carb-food.
I always wondered why there are so many kinds of pasta. I guess it's to keep things interesting.
