Ricotta gnocchi

Red pepper sauce

Spinach

1
To begin, place the ricotta in a muslin cloth and wring out any liquid until the ricotta is a dry, crumbly texture
2
Add to a large mixing bowl and mix in the flour, Parmesan, egg and a pinch of salt. Knead until you have a smooth dough
3
Roll the dough into long logs and and cut into gnocchi portions using a sharp knife. Add to a pan of salted boiling water - when they rise to the top, they are ready
4
Dry the gnocchi and place in a baking tray with a little oil. Refrigerate until needed
5
Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 8
6
Roast the peppers in the oven until the skins start to blacken and blister. Remove from the oven and set aside until cool enough to handle (but still warm)
7
Peel the peppers then add the flesh to a blender and blitz until smooth. Season to taste with salt
8
Gently reheat the pepper sauce in a saucepan. Wilt the spinach in a pan with a little oil and season with plenty of salt. Reheat the gnocchi in a pan of salted boiling water, then drain well
9
To serve, spread a spoonful of pepper sauce on the base of each plate and top with 5 gnocchi. Add a few leaves of spinach on top and serve
