Gnocchi is a small Italian dumpling. The most common gnocchi are made of potato, but I prefer the spinach and ricotta cheese. They can be served as a side dish or even for a light lunch or dinner. These ricotta gnocchi are very light and delicious, just toss them in a little olive oil, melted butter or any kind of sauce and serve.

Yield: Makes 30-33 Gnocchi

  • 320 g spinach
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Rinse the spinach (do not dry) and place in a pot. Add salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until tender, about 4-5 minutes.

Drain the spinach in a colander. Once it is sufficiently cool to handle, squeeze out as much water as possible.

Transfer the spinach to a cutting board and chop. Let cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, combine spinach, garlic, ricotta cheese, flour, egg yolks and parmesan cheese. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Dust your hands in the flour. Take a small amount of the mixture and roll them into small balls in your hands.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 8x11-inch baking dish with no-stick cooking spray. Gently place them in the prepared baking dish. Place the baking dish on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish. You can serve gnocchi with melted butter and grated Parmesan cheese or any kind of sauce.
