This lemon ricotta gnocchi dish is made in the pan making it a quick and easy dish to make. Great if you are in a rush too!
I made it with coconut flour to keep it low carb and each gnocchi is just 1g net carb. They are cooked in a frying pan making it easy enough for anyone to make.
A great summery dish that is very light. If you are sharing this dish (albeit reluctantly as I did) a leafy side salad goes well with the lemony gnocchi.
