     1/4 c  Grated Parmigiano Reggiano
     1/2 t  Nutmeg
   2 1/2 tb Sea salt
     1/2 t  Cayenne pepper
   1 1/2 c  Chicken stock
       5 tb Roasted garlic puree
     1/2 c  Virgin olive oil
            Salt to taste
            Pepper to taste
       4 oz Prociutto, cut julienne
     1/2 c  Grated Parmegiano Reggiano
   Pass the hot potatoes through a food mill and cool. Lightly knead in
   the flour. Add the egg yolk, ricotta and ricotta salads and knead
   lightly. Add the chard, cheese, nutmeg, salt and pepper, mix well and
   knead until smooth. Do not over-knead.
   Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into 1/2 ropes and
   cut into 3/4 lengths. Chill for at least 45 minutes.
   Bring 3 quarts of salted water to the boil and add the gnocchi in
   three batches. Cook until they rise to the top and remove with a
   slotted spoon.
   Warm the chicken broth and whisk in the garlic puree, olive oil, salt
   and pepper. Divide the gnocchi into 8 dishes, ladle with the broth
   and garnish with prociutto and cheese.
   Note: To roast garlic, remove the papery skin from the whole head and
   slice off 1/4 across the top. Place garlic in a small baking dish and
   drizzle with olive oil. Cover with foil and cook for 30 minutes at
   350'F. Remove foil and cook 20 minutes longer, or until soft.
