Mash the ricotta in a bowl and mix the egg, 1 yolk, grated parmesan, flour, salt and pepper to obtain a smooth mixture.

Prepare the saffron cream by combining the softened butter, the remaining yolk, saffron, salt and pepper in a bowl and mixing well.

Using two spoons to help you, form the gnocchi and cook by sliding them into plenty of salted, boiling water. When they come to the surface, drain with a slotted spoon and arrange on individual serving plates. Dress with the cream and garnish with slivers of parmesan if desired.

Soft and creamy, Seirass is the classic Piedmont ricotta made with cow’s milk whey. Snowy-white, it has a soft, whey-like consistency and a just-milked flavour. It is contained in a cone-shaped cloth bag.
