Mix everything with some salt and pepper and roll into shapes then boil for 1-2 minutes. Serve with your favorite sauce and it makes pretty delicious gnocchi, and feels like you are eating a bowl of pasta even though its mostly ricotta cheese!
I repped you for posting this! My favorite dish at Jane in NYC is the toasted ricotta gnocchi in a white truffle cream sauce. It's even been featured on that My Favorite Thing show. Now I'm halfway there!
