Ricotta Gnudi

1 cup ricotta

1 cup grated parmesan

1 cup flour plus for rolling dough

Wrap dough in plastic and let rest for 1 hour in the refrigerator.

Working in two batches, dust a work surface with flour and roll dough into a long 1 inch wide cylinder.

Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil.

Add gnudi and cook until the gnudi floats about 1 minute.

Serve gnudi with pesto or glazed spring vegetables.
