4 1/4 cups of flour
2 eggs
1.5 pound of ricotta cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated parmigiano cheese plus extra for sprinkling
pinch of salt & pepper
1 teaspoon of olive oil
4 cups marinara sauce

1. Using 4 cups of the flour on a wooden board make a mound with a well in the center.

2. Add eggs, ricotta, 1/2 cup of parmagiano and salt & pepper in well and knead to form a dough.

3. Knead lightly for 2 to 3 more minutes, gradually adding remaining flour if the dough sticks to the board or your hands.

4. When the dough is soft and dry to the touch divide it into pieces the size of an orange.

5. Using both hands, roll out each piece of dough into a roll about the size of your index finger.

6. Cut each roll into 1/2 inch pieces.

7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

8. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add a teaspoon of olive oil oil and the gnocchi.

10. Remove the gnocchi from the water with a slotted spoon and transfer to the saute pan.

11. Saute gnocchi in sauce until coated, then transfer to a casserole dish sprinkle with parmigianno cheese to taste and bake in oven for 10 minutes.
