1
To make the gnocchi dough, add the saffron powder to the warm water, then beat into the semolina to form a dough
2
Knead for 5 minutes until the dough becomes springy. Wrap in cling film and leave to rest for 1 hour
3
Meanwhile, make the ragù. Sauté the onions and garlic with the fennel seeds and bay leaf in a splash of oil until soft but not coloured
4
Add the sausage meat, stir until nicely browned, then add the white wine and reduce by three quarters
5
Add the tin of tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook down for around 20 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Keep warm
6
When ready to shape the malloreddus, cut off a piece off the dough and roll into a thin cylinder, around 0.7cm in diameter. Chop into pieces around 2.5cm long
7
Repeat this process with the rest of the dough
8
Using a gnocchi board, drag the dough pieces down the board with your thumb one at a time, creating ridged little curls; the perfect shape for collecting the ragù
9
Leave the shapes to dry out on a tray sprinkled with semolina flour
