In Italy we have several dish made with this herb but it was the first time to me to try it out. So Andrea and I decided to make the “Gnocchi all´ortica e ricotta”, for the recipe click here.
The smell of this leaves when you boiled them is simply wonderful.
To make this dish a culinary experience I suggest you a good quality sheep ricotta.
The marinated tomatoes are simply perfect to give the special twist to this simple dish.
At the beginning it will be a little bit complicated to shape it but with a little of patience you will make it and you will become a real expert on the last one.
