This recipe uses ingredients typical of the countryside around Rome. The delicate taste of the artichoke is enhanced by a touch of thyme, with the other ingredients ranked together in second place in deference to the star of the dish.


  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 artichoke hearts, minced
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 9 ounces bread without crusts, cubed
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, plus additional for serving
  • Salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 sprig thyme


Heap the flour on a pastry board and make a well in the center. Add the artichoke hearts, eggs, bread, wine, Parmesan and a pinch of salt. Knead vigorously; set aside to rest for about 30 minutes, covered with a damp cloth.

Knead the dough and shape into a thin cylinder. Cut the dough into 3/4 inch lengths.

Cook the gnocchi in plenty of boiling salted water; drain. In a skillet, heat the butter with the thyme sprig. Saute the gnocchi quickly. Sprinkle with a little Parmesan and serve.
