2-3 med sweet potatoes
10 oz Ricotta, drained in a sieve for 2 hrs
½ tsp Nutmeg
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup parmesan cheese
2 1/2 cup flour (depends on how sticky dough is)
2 tsp salt
Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place sweet potatoes on plate; microwave on high until tender, about 5 minutes per side. Cut in half and cool. Scrape the sweet potato flesh into medium bowl and mash. Peel and cut carrots in half. Boil them in salted water for about 10-15 minutes or until soft and tender when pricked with a fork. Mash and add to sweet potato mixture. Add ricotta cheese and blend well. Add Parmesan cheese, brown sugar, salt, and nutmeg; mash to blend. Mix in flour, about 1/2 cup at a time, until soft dough forms.
Turn dough out onto floured surface; divide into 6 equal pieces. Rolling between palms and floured work surface, form each piece into 20-inch-long rope (about 1 inch in diameter), sprinkling with flour as needed if sticky. Cut each rope into 20 pieces. Roll each piece over tines of fork to indent. Transfer to baking sheet.
Bring large pot of water to boil; add 2 tablespoons salt and return to boil. Working in batches, boil gnocchi until tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer gnocchi to clean rimmed baking sheet. Cool completely and serve with brown butter or pesto (i used a broccoli pesto).
