Bestia's Roasted Bone Marrow Gnocchetti


Email wouldn’t go through.


I was just curious. I don’t need the recipe, thanks.


8 month wait list for the book la public library, doh!


We were somewhat successful at winging the recipe. As my son said, it’s good mom, but not the same. I think I didn’t make enough bone marrow for the amount of pasta. And I didn’t really know how to incorporate the balsamic or how much to use. But I think the pasta I used had the right amount of chew and the Panko flakes added good texture. All in all, I’d make it again. With a few tweaks. We’ll probably not get to the real recipe before thanksgiving but I’ll report when we do.


Tried to scan and send it to @PorkyBelly but didn’t work (probably privacy limits on our interactions - appreciate that). So here is recipe:
1 Tb tasteless oil
1 smashed garlic clove
1 cup spinach leaves
6 Tb whole milk
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Saute garlic in oil until starting to brown. Add spinach until wilted. Cool slightly, transfer to blender and add egg yolk and milk. Blend to a smooth pureee.
Bring two quarts of salted water to a boil. Prepare ice bath.
Whisk 3/4 cup 00 flour and 2 Tbs grated Parmesan together. Mix with spinach puree and 1 tsp kosher salt.
Have 2 qts of salted water boiling. Use a spaetzle maker or a colander to cook 1/2 the batter into the boiling water. Cook for two minutes. Fish out and drain on a towel lined plate. Cook the other half. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 500. Season bone with pepper. Roast for five minutes.Switch to broil and cook for two minutes.
Toss pasta with 1tsp of oil.
Heat 1 Tbs of oil until hot. Brown smashed garlic clove until golden. Add gnocchetti and brown for 2 minutes. Flip and brown for one. Add 1/3 cup stock (recipe says vegetable but I use chicken), 1 Tbs butter and 2 Tbs Parmesan. Mix it all up and enjoy!!!
I hope this will satisfy your incredible son’s desire!
Sprinkle with Maldon salt and drizzle with aged Balsamic. Last edit I promise!
Best of luck!!!


Did you paraphrase the recipe? Evidently that’s the copyright law reg. You can list the ingredients but have to paraphrase the instructions. And thanks :smile:


I did very much so. Ori’s writing is much smoother than mine.


Thanks! I guess I didn’t realize how much flavor was incorporated into the gnochetti already. I guess I’m going to have to learn how to make gnochetti.
