Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Combine ricotta, flour, salt, nutmeg and half the parmesan (or vegetarian cheese) in a big bowl until a soft dough forms.

Divide dough into quarters and on a lightly flour bench, roll each quarter into a 34cm long log and then cut logs into 2cm lengths.

Step 5

Cook gnudi in batches in a big saucepan of boiling salted water for 2 minutes or until tender and gnudi float to the top and then using a slotted spoon, transfer gnudi to prepared tray.
