Lesson to be learned: Follow the gnudi recipe to the letter, or you might not have enough binding to keep them together.
We started thinking about gnudi again yesterday. There was an article in The New York Times Magazine about malfatti, which means "poorly made" in Italian. According to Amanda Hesser, malfatti are gnudilike in their nakedness, only these were formed with breadcrumbs instead of ricotta and were baked under the broiler after being boiled.
Gnudi... Malfatti... They both sound good to us, and both are a lovely, light way to eat Italian without the pasta.
Who else eats gnudi?
