  • Gnocci alla Romana
  •  
  • 250 grams / 8.8 oz of semolina flour
  • 1 litre (1000 ml)/4.22 cups of milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 100-200 ml / 0.42-0.85 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • a large knob of butter, melted
  • salt
  1. In a medium saucepan cook the milk and the semolina flour until it has thickened and become like porridge.
  2. Add the egg yolks, a pat of butter and salt and stir well.
  3. Pour out the whole batch out onto a flat surface, preferably lined with baking paper, and smooth and flatten it so that you have a large rectangle that is 1 cm high/thick.
  4. With a greased glass or a cookie cutter so that the semolina doesn't stick, cut out circles. You can also simply do it the easy way and cut squares with a knife.
  5. Put the semolina circles into a buttered oven-proof dish, sprinkle the cheese over and pour melted butter over the top of whole dish.
  6. Bake in a pre-heated oven 200°C (392°F) until it is golden.
  7. Serve warm.
