Ricotta Gnocchi Recipe: 

To make gnocchi, combine ricotta, eggs, salt, nutmeg, parmesan, and lemon zest in a robot coupe until smooth. Add flour to the mixture to form a dough, adjusting as needed for consistency. Roll the dough into a 3/4 inch log on a floured surface and cut into gnocchi-sized pieces. Blanch in salty water and let cool. Sear the gnocchi in batches in a pan with olive oil until golden brown on both sides, then set aside. In the same pan, add a little more oil then proceed to cook the vegetables with salt and pepper. Deglaze with lemon juice and add the gnocchi to the pan. Pour in Lemon creme sauce (recipe below), and reduce the sauce to desired consistency. Garnish with goat cheese and fresh arugula leaves before serving.

Lemon Cream Recipe

Begin by sautéing garlic and shallot in butter over medium heat until the shallots are translucent, taking care not to burn them. Then, deglaze the pan with white wine and reduce it by half. Next, add lemon juice and reduce again by half. After that, pour in cream and reduce the mixture by a third. Once the sauce has reached the desired consistency, transfer it to a blender and add xanthan gum to stabilize and bring it to the correct thickness.
