Nettle and Ricotta Gnudi with Apples, Burnt Butter, Sage and Walnut Sauce

25 Oct 14 by

Cooking with weeds. After picking up some nettles at the market recently I spent the weekend cooking them up in some new dishes. Gnudi is a favourite – little ‘nude’ ravioli, as it butter sauce. With a nuttier, richer taste than spinach, nettles really hold their own on a plate. The rich burnt butter sauce adds some creaminess to the light ricotta rounds.

Orecchiette (singular, orecchietta), from orecchio (ear) + etto (small)) is a kind of home-made pasta typical of Puglia or Apulia, a region of Southern Italy. Its name comes from its shape, which resembles a small ear. In this recipe we’ve teamed little delight with all of the fresh herbs, some citrus and a sprinkling of feta cheese for the ultimate alfresco dining meal or easy midweek meal.
