step 5: once the potato gnocchi pieces have floated to the top, place into the pan and stir. add a small handful of grated parmesan and toss in the basil leaves. gently stir through.
step 6: spoon into a serving bowl and place a dollop of stringy stracciatella on top. squeeze over fresh lemon juice (optional) and enjoy!

note: nduja is a Calabrian sausage that adds a uniquely spicy taste to your cooking and works really well with a creamy cheese such as stracciatella. i am using the tasty nduja flavoured butter by @pepesaya
