My favorite pizza is the Personal Trainer’s Choice and all of our salads are a must, too. Our local fish is my favorite ingredient because it doesn’t get any fresher and you can’t beat the taste! I’m sharing my recipe for three cheese gnocchi. A lot of people out there make bad gnocchi, but this one uses Maui ingredients and it goes great with everything.



Mise en place: Everything in its place! Always be organized!



Three Cheese Gnocchi


1 lb ricotta cheese

1 lb goat cheese

2 cups parmigiano-reggiano

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 eggs

Salt and pepper to taste


Put ingredients on a flat surface

Fold ingredients with a rubber spatula (DO NOT OVER MIX!)

Adjust seasoning to taste

Roll dough into logs

Cut to desired lengths

Cook in salted boiling water

When it floats its done

Place in ice water to shock it (stop it from cooking more)

Sauté in olive oil and butter until golden brown.
