Gnocchi are usually made with potatoes or semolina, this recipe comes from Sassari and uses ricotta cheese instead of the potatoes, therefore making the dish much lighter, though equally scrumptious. Here it is served in a tomato and basil sauce and topped with some grated parmesan. Another very popular version is with butter and sage, again topped with a coating of grated parmesan. This is just an example of the excellent food one can find in the many B&Bs or holiday farms scattered all over the island.
