This is an extra cheesy and super easy recipe that your whole family will love!
What You'll Need:
1 (15-ounce) container whole milk ricotta cheese 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting 1 stick butter 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley 2 cloves garlic, minced
How To Make It:
1. In a large bowl, combine ricotta cheese, eggs, egg yolk, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix well. Add 1 cup flour and stir just until combined and mixture forms a ball. (Mixture will be soft.)
2. Dust baking sheets with flour. Drop a teaspoonful of dough onto baking sheet in an oval shape. Repeat with remaining dough. (You will get approximately 60.) Lightly dust with more flour.
3. In a large pot of boiling salted water, drop about 15 dough balls. When dough rises to top of water, cook another 4 minutes, or until no longer gummy in center. Using a slotted spoon, remove dumplings to a bowl. Repeat with remaining dough balls until all are cooked.
4. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add dumplings, parsley, garlic, and remaining salt and pepper. Cook 5 to 6 minutes or until dumplings start to brown, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.
