Spinach and Bread Gnocchi
Spinach and Bread Gnocchi
(Gnocchi Di Spinaci e Pane)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
1 and 1/2 lbs (675 grams) spinach
12 oz (350 grams) day-old bread
7 fl oz (200 ml) whole milk
3 and 1/2 oz (100 grams) butter
3 oz (80 grams) Parmigiano cheese, freshly grated
1 egg
3 and 1/2 oz (100 grams) plain flour, plus extra for dusting
Salt

Directions:

Tear the bread into pieces.
 
Place them in a large bowl, add the milk and leave until it has been completely absorbed.

Cook the spinach in very little water for about 5 minutes until tender.

Drain, squeezing out as much liquid as possible, and chop.

Melt 3/4 oz (20 grams) of the butter in a frying pan.
 
Add the spinach and 1 and 1/2 oz (40 grams) of the Parmigiano cheese and cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir into the bowl of bread, then stir in the egg and flour.
 
Make long rolls with the mixture.
 
Cut them into pieces the same length, dust lightly with flour and shake off any excess.

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

Meanwhile, melt the remaining butter.

Drain the gnocchi well, arrange on a warm serving dish and pour the melted butter over them.

Sprinkle with the remaining Parmigiano cheese, mix gently and serve. Serves 4.

That's it!
