Pasta & Side Dishes
This deliciously elegant recipe is sure to wow your guests. Fairly simple to make, these Dungeness Crab & Ricotta Dumplings are served in a quattro formaggio sauce and pair perfectly with our Emelia’s Cuvée Chardonnay.
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Form the dumplings by pressing the mix into a large spoon. Cook them in a steamer for 2-3 minutes. If a steamer is not available, place dumplings on a greased baking sheet and bake at 350°F oven for 6-8 minutes.
Quattro Formaggio Sauce
Place all liquids, garlic and onion in a pot and bring to a simmer. In a small bowl, incorporate the butter and flour then drop it into the pot of hot liquid and whisk until smooth. Allow to simmer for 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat. Add cheeses and continue to whisk. Return to heat and simmer for an additional 6-8 minutes.
To serve this recipe, place 1/3 cup cheese sauce into a warm bowl. Place a handful of steamed spinach leaves in the center and top with 1 Tbsp tomato concasse. Set five dumplings around the spinach and top with grated Parmesan
