Cooking Instructions

For gnocchi:


1

In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, nutmeg and salt. Add ricotta and eggs. Mix gently with a wooden spoon until the ingredients are just incorporated.


2

Portion the gnocchi using two teaspoons. Using a teaspoon of dough for each gnocchi, form 80 to 90 little football-shaped quenelles.


3

In a non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium heat; sauté the gnocchi until golden brown; stirring and turning frequently. Add more butter, if necessary to prevent sticking.


4

Remove from heat; keep warm.


For cheddar sauce:


1

Heat milk in a heavy-bottom saucepan. Add garlic and grappa; blend. Using a wooden spoon, stir in cheddar and fontina over low heat, stirring in one direction, until cheese is melted and smooth. Do not allow mixture to boil.


2

Final preparation: Heat broiler. Stir together gnocchi and cheddar sauce to coat. Pour into a casserole dish and sprinkle with bread crumbs and parsley. Place under broiler to brown for 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
