Ingredients

For the Gnocchi

 

For the Cheese Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons Royal Sharbati Atta
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup shredded Swiss cheese

 

For the Topping

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 cup panko or coarse dry bread crumbs
  • ½ cup (2 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

For the Gnocchi

  1. Mix together ricotta, parmesan, and beaten eggs in a large mixing bowl. Slowly add 2 cups of whole wheat flour, stirring together.
  2. If dough does not clump into a ball, add more flour slowly until it does. You want the dough to hold its shape while still being sticky.
  3. Turn dough out onto floured surface. Make a baseball-sized ball from some of the dough and roll it into a log on a floured surface about as thick as your thumb.
  4. Using a sharp knife, slice the log into pieces about as wide as they are thick. Continue to form the gnocchi, placing them onto a parchment lined baking sheet as you go.  Flash freeze the gnocchi.
  5. Drop gnocchi in pot of boiling water. Stir gently to prevent them from sticking together, then cook for two to four minutes.

 

For the Cheese Sauce

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook onion for about 1 minute, or until wilted. Add the Royal Sharbati Atta, stirring until well blended. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in the salt and pepper.
  2. Gradually stir in the vegetable or chicken broth and cream. Continue cooking over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes longer. Stir in the cheeses and continue cooking and stirring until melted.

 

For the Topping

  1. Make the topping by tossing the panko with the melted butter in a medium bowl.
  2. Mix in the cheese and set aside.

 

Assembly

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Toss cooked Gnocchi in the cheese sauce. Put in an oven proof dish and then top with the Topping. Bake until the cheese is bubbly and the topping is lightly golden
