Keto Ricotta & Parmigiano Gnocchi with Parmigiano Reggiano Tomato Sauce

Yields6 ServingsPrep Time20 minsCook Time2 hrsTotal Time2 hrs 20 mins

Ingredients for Sauce
 2 cans San Marzano Peeled Tomatoes (28oz each)
 4 cloves of garlic, minced
 ¼ cup onion
 2 tbsp olive oil
 2 tbsp sun dried tomato paste
 1 tbsp basil, fresh
 1 tbsp oregano, fresh
 1 tbsp parsley, fresh
 ½ tsp salt
 ½ tsp pepper
Ingredients for Gnocchi
 1 oz almond flour
 ½ oz coconut flour
 2 tsp xanthan gum
 7.50 oz ricotta cheese
 2.50 oz Parmigiano Reggiano, freshly grated
 1 egg
 1 tsp salt
 2 tbsp butter
Directions for Sauce

Puree 1 can of the tomatoes in a blender and set aside.


In a stock pot, add your olive oil and heat. Add the garlic and onions. Once the garlic and onions are translucent, stir in all the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil, constantly stirring so it doesn't stick. Once boiled bring the heat to a low boil and cook for about 2 hours. Remember to give the sauce a good stir every once in a while.

Directions for Gnocchi

Add the almond, coconut flour, and xanthan gum to a medium bowl and whisk until combined thoroughly. Set aside.


Add ricotta and Parmigiano cheese to a large bowl and mix well. Add in the flour mixture and mix again very well. Season to taste with salt and mix in the lightly beaten egg. The dough will be sticky, but it will form into a ball easily. If not, add a little more almond flour. Wrap the ball with saran wrap and refrigerate for an hour or more.


Remove dough from the fridge and form into rounds (about 1 inch). The dough will be soft and still sticky but should form into rounds with no issues. Place in a tray and press down with a fork to lightly flatten them. Freeze for about 10 minutes before frying.


Heat the butter in a skillet on medium/low heat. Once hot, add in the gnocchi, flat side down. Move the pan around to keep them from sticking, basting them throughout the cooking process, which will be about 4–5 minutes. Be very careful in the cooking process as they are very fragile.


Serve right away and enjoy!
