It’s a first course, very easy and simple in preparation. Since I tried them I’ve been thinking about these ricotta dumplings for a long time; they’re a different version of the most common potato dumplings and they literally surprised me. You can really prepare them quick or in advance and save them in the fridge or even freeze them. In this recipe I scented and flavored the ricotta dumplings with wild fennel and fresh broad beans. Combining all these ingredients together made me realize this very easy first course, ideal for any occasion.
