Pasta for dessert? Why not? These lightly sweetened vanilla and chocolate gnocchi are filled with ricotta and topped with fresh raspberry sauce, creating an unexpected (and inexpensive) sweet and slightly savory dessert. Grab everything at the grocery store for about $10.

Ingredients

1

large egg, lightly beaten

1 cup

ricotta

½ tsp

vanilla extract

pinch

of salt

⅓ cup

granulated sugar

½ cup

flour plus 2 tbsp all purpose flour, divided

3 tbsp

Dutch processed cocoa powder, plus more for rolling

1 ½ cups

raspberries


directions

Step 1

Mix together the egg, ricotta, vanilla extract, salt, and granulated sugar plus the ½ flour in a large bowl. Divide the dough in half, putting each half into separate bowls.

Step 2

In the first bowl, add 2 tablespoons flour and mix. In the second bowl, mix in the cocoa powder.

Step 3

Fill 2 shallow skillets with water and heat to boiling over high heat.

Step 4

Roll the chocolate dough in cocoa powder into a log approximately ½-inch thick. Roll the remaining dough in flour. Cut each into ½-inch logs and use a fork to create lines on top of the gnocchi.

Step 5

Puree 1 cup raspberries in a blender.

Step 6

Cook the gnocchi in separate skillets until the gnocchi float to the surface, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a tray.

Step 7

Serve the gnocchi warm in raspberry sauce and garnish with remaining raspberries.
