Spinach and Ricotta Gnocchi
Spinach and Ricotta Gnocchi
(Gnocchi Di Spinaci e Ricotta)
 
 
Ingredients:

2 and 1/4 lbs (1 kg) spinach
12 oz (350 grams) ricotta cheese
4 tablespoons Parmigiano cheese, freshly grated
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
Plain flour, for dusting
2 oz (50 grams) butter, melted
Salt and pepper 

Directions:

Cook the spinach, in just the water clinging to the leaves after washing, for about 5 minutes.
 
Drain the spinach, squeezing out as much liquid as possible, chop finely and put in a bowl.

Add the ricotta cheese, half the Parmigiano cheese, the egg yolks and season with salt and pepper.

Shape the mixture into balls and lightly dust with flour.

Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to a boil, add the gnocchi, a few at a time, and remove with a slotted spoon as they rise to the surface.

Place the gnocchi on a warm serving dish.
 
Pour the melted butter over them and sprinkle with the remaining Parmigiano cheese. Serves 4.

That's it!
