gnocchi alla romana (baked semolina gnocchi)
  • 1 quart milk
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups fine semolina flour
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 1/4 cups grated Grana Padano cheese, divided
  • 1/3 cup grated Gruyere cheese
  • 1 (3 ounce) package pancetta bacon, diced
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg, or to taste


  1. Combine milk, 1/4 cup butter, and a pinch of salt in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Whisk semolina into boiling milk, mixing well to prevent lumps. Reduce heat and cook, stirring often, until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat. Add egg yolks, 1 cup Grana Padano, and Gruyere cheese; stir well.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat; cook and stir pancetta until crisp, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir pancetta into semolina mixture.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets with 1 1/2 teaspoon butter.
  4. Spread semolina mixture onto 1 of the prepared baking sheets, about 1/2-inch thick. Allow to cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
  5. Cut small disks out of cooled semolina using a juice glass or cookie cutter. Place the disks onto the other prepared baking sheet, slightly overlapping the disks. Sprinkle the remaining Grana Padano cheese over disks and dot with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoon butter.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until gnocchi are nicely crisp and golden, about 20 minutes.
