Mascarpone and Lemon Gnocchi With Butter Thyme Sauce

Ingredients

    For the gnocchi:
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Zest of 2 large lemons
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for forming the gnocchi
  • 1/4 cup shaved Pecorino Romano
  • For the sauce:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  • For the gnocchi: In a large bowl, combine the mascarpone, egg, egg yolk, nutmeg, lemon zest, Parmesan, and salt. Using a hand mixer, beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Gradually beat in 3/4 cup flour until the mixture forms a soft dough.
  • Sprinkle a pie pan or rimmed baking sheet with flour. Using 2 small spoons, drop 1 teaspoon-sized pieces of dough into the pie pan. Shake the pan gently to cover the dough with flour. Gently roll the pieces of dough into oval shapes.
  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a simmer. In batches, carefully add the gnocchi. The gnocchi should sink and then float to the top. As soon as the gnocchi begin to float, cook for 5 to 6 minutes. Drain and place in a large serving bowl.
  • For the sauce: In a small saucepan, warm the oil and salt over medium-high heat for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the basil. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
  • Add the sauce and cheese to the gnocchi and gently toss until coated.
