The Gnudi Chicken Meatball

4 to 6 servings

Whipped Ricotta and Mascarpone

1 container of mascarpone (500 g)

1 container (1 pound) ricotta cheese

1. In a bowl, combine mascarpone and ricotta and blend until smooth.

2. On a platter, place the whipped ricotta and mascarpone and spread evenly to create a

1-inch thick layer.

3. Place the chicken meatballs on top and drizzle with the red pepper sauce.

Red Pepper Sauce

4 sweet red peppers, thinly sliced

½ cup onions or shallots, thinly sliced

2 garlic cloves peeled and crushed with knife

1 ounce extra virgin olive oil

¾ cup vegetable stock or canned chicken broth

1 teaspoon excellent quality balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper to taste

1. Sauté the pepper, onion and garlic in the olive oil until heated through.

2. Cover the pan and sweat until the vegetables are softened to the touch.

3. Add the stock; simmer until the sauce is reduced to the point at which there is no free liquid visible on the bottom of the pan (about 8-10 minutes).

4. Puree the sauce in the blender until it is completely smooth. Adjust the consistency as needed; to thin the sauce, add a little stock.

5. Taste the sauce and finish by adding balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.

6. Sauce can be used hot, warm or cold.

Note: To give a more intense flavor, roast and peel the red peppers before preparing this sauce. Peppers roasted in a hot oven have a better flavor or peppers that are roasted by means of grilling over an open flame. In both cases, the skin needs to be removed after cooking the peppers and before proceeding with sauce recipe.
