Making these were kinda fun but my research is divided on whether to go with the little ridges or just gnudi balls. Then there's a whole nother version of gnudi a la the Spotted Pig in NY of gnudi balls that are a bit larger and creamy in the middle. You know what that means....more homemade CHEESE.

With all the amazing suggestions our commentators made of what to do with my homemade ricotta, I see quite a bit of cheese making in my future. However I decided to try my hand at making gnudi. Gnudi is Italian for nude and basically what you're making is ravoli filling without the ravoli pasta envelope. Again I used a recipe from the cookbook Stir which calls for the pasta to be edged either with a fork or a gnocci board.
