  • Serves6
  • DifficultyEasy
240g whole milk ricotta cheese
50g plain flour, plus 100g for coating
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
2 egg yolks
2 eggs
180g grated Parmesan
450g frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 jar tomato pasta sauce, heated
1) Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

2) In a large mixing bowl, combine ricotta, spinach, Parmesan cheese, eggs, and yolks. Stir in nutmeg, salt, pepper, and flour. Form mixture in to small, flattened balls- "gnudi".

3) Dredge the formed gnudi in flour to coat, tapping off the excess. Slide them into the boiling water. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan; work in batches if necessary. Remove the gnudi using a slotted spoon after they float to the top and have cooked for about 4 minutes.

4) Arrange gnudi on a platter and lightly drizzle with marinara sauce.
