This is an amazing alternative if you want to replace the common use of potato (as that is what gnocchi are usually made of) with ricotta. And if you had some ricotta lying in the fridge waiting to be used..this is what you should do.
The recipe says to use two spoons to form the gnocchi, I used one spoon to collect the portion I needed and then just shaped the gnocchi with my hands rolling it in some flour at the end. I also made the dough and kept it in the fridge for when I would be ready to boil the gnocchi (that means that would also be the right time to form the gnocchi, just before you boil them in the water) so you don't have to worry that you'll have to make them all at once (make the dough, shaping, rolling, boiling)..
Make a classic butter-onion-tomato sauce and shred some parmezan on top.
Simple recipes are the best.
