Step 1: Soup

Bring the stock to a boil, add the pea pods, and infuse for 20 minutes. Filter through a fine-meshed chinois.

Sweat the shelled peas in a drizzle of oil. Add the boiling stock, the butter and the sugar then cook quickly.

When cooked, transfer to the high speed blender and reduce to a fine puree, then sieve through a fine tamis before cooling quickly.

Step 2: Mushrooms

Place the ricotta, flour, and egg in the blender, liquefy until very smooth, and set aside in the refrigerator for a few moments.

Make quenelles of the gnocchi dough with two teaspoons and plunge them in boiling salted water. As soon as the gnocchi come back to the surface, cool and set aside in a greased plate.

Braise the fairy ring mushrooms in dab of butter, and add the peas. Sweat for a few moments, moisten with the stock, and let thicken.

Add the gnocchi, toss in the juice, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
