Join Carers Victoria’s Kerry as she demonstrates how to make Marg’s Ricotta Gnocchi in 10 short minutes. See Recipe below.

Marg’s Ricotta Gnocchi


250g ricotta – fresh from deli or pre-packaged

1/4 cup parmesan

1 tsp salt & pinch pepper

3/4 cup plain flour – plus extra for dusting

1 egg


Mix your dough ingredients. Stir the ricotta and egg together, then mix in the flour, parmesan, salt and pepper until combined.

Roll out and cut the dough.  Shape the dough into a round disk with your hands, then transfer it to a lightly-floured cutting board and sprinkle the dough with lightly with flour.  Using a knife or a bench scraper, cut the dough into eight even pie wedges.  Then using your hands, gently roll out each wedge out into an even log, approximately 3/4-inch wide.  Cut each log into individual bite-sized little gnocchi squares.  Lightly dust the gnocchi with flour once more and give them a quick toss so that they are all lightly coated with flour.  (This will help prevent them from sticking together.)

Boil the gnocchi. Carefully transfer them to your pot of boiling water.  Then once they float — usually after about 30-60 seconds — they’re ready to go!

Serve.  Serve immediately, tossed with your favourite sauce and whatever other ingredients sound good! ♡
