4 cups ricotta
1/2 cup Parmesan, grated
1 cup chives, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg
1 cup flour plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons olive oil
6-10 anchovies (optional)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 cup white wine
8 tomatoes, chopped


Step 1
In a large bowl, combine ricotta, Parmesan, chives, salt, and nutmeg. Mix well. Make a well in the middle and crack egg into center. Mix until fully combined.

Step 2
Add flour and mix until dough thickens. Divide roughly into six sections.

Step 3
Generously flour a cutting board or other surface. Roll each of the six sections into a log, about 1 to 1½ inches thick. If log is sticking to surface, dust with more flour.

Step 4
Cut logs into 1 inch pieces. Place pieces, cut side down, onto a separate floured surface and press down on them with a fork to shape.

Step 5
Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to boil. Add gnocchi (in batches if crowded), and cook until they float for 1-2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a large bowl or plate.

Step 6
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Add anchovies and cook until they start to break down, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in garlic cloves and cook until fragrant. Pour in white wine and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Add tomatoes, stir well, and reduce heat. Cook until sauce has thickened, about 15 minutes.

Step 7
Once sauce is ready, you can add gnocchi into the pan if they need to be reheated or else pour sauce on top of gnocchi.
