Grandma’s Chicche

1 comment

Today’s lunch! It should be a dish from Emilia Romagna, although I’m not 100% sure. Anyway, here in  Piacenza they’re quite famous, they came to my mind because I saw them yesterday at the supermarket in the pasta department … basically they are just green gnocchi! I found many recipes containing ricotta, but those that I find around don’t have it among the ingredients. In any case, I’ve made them as simple green gnocchi (they haven’t come out so green, though! I have put a few Swiss chard)

Ingredients
(serves 4 / 6):
1 kg potatoes
spinach / greens / swiss chard
300 g flour
nutmeg
salt

Method:
As with all gnocchi: I boiled the potatoes in a pressure cooker (the herbs as well) and once warm I crushed potatoes and whipped  the chards, I added salt, nutmeg, flour and kneaded rather quickly (the more you knead the more flour it absorbs). I divided the dough and formed little “snakes” from which I got fairly small pieces (in theory they could be even smaller, but I could not make two alike)
While  I was working, mom took some tomatoes and prepared a simple tomato sauce with basil.
Boiled them in salted water until they came to surface, seasoned and eaten!

    Good! So good!!!!! I did something similar last week, but just adding minced basil leaves to the gnocchi dough. They didn’t come out particularly green, but the taste was interesing and quite distinctive 🙂
