Well, whether or not you find a ricotta cheese dumpling sexy, I promise you WILL find it delicious.
One 15-16 ounce container Ricotta
½ pounds frozen spinach, thawed + drained, chopped fine
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
Pinch of nutmeg
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon dried Oregano
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup Panko bread crumbs
3 egg yolks
Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl, don’t over mix. Roll mixture into small 1-2inch balls. Cook in boiling water for 3-4 minutes until the Gnudi float. Toss gently with sauce and ENJOY!
- Depending on the amount of water in your ricotta you may need more flour or bread crumbs. If you cannot roll the mixture into a ball, add more flour or bread crumbs.
- Be sure the spinach is finely chopped. Even if you're using frozen pre-chopped spinach, run your knife through the spinach once more to ensure it is finely chopped.
- Make sure the spinach is as dry as possible.
