Lemon Ricotta Gnocchi (Pan Fried)

lemon ricotta gnocchi

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.
