Italian Cheese Dumplings

If you’re looking to add something new to your Italian menu, then you’ve gotta make Italian Cheese Dumplings. This extra cheesy and super easy Italian recipe is a jaw-dropper your guests 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

What To Do:

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.
