“Gnudi” Ricotta, spinach, gnocchi, butter and sage


Ingredients for 4 people

700g Fresh spinach

400g Fresh ricotta

60g Flour

100g Grated parmigiano reggiano

1 Egg

1 Teaspoon of grated nutmeg

6 Leaves of fresh basil

1 Clove of garlic

2 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

1 Cup of flour to roll the gnudi in 

150g of butter

10 Fresh leaves of sage 


  1. Wash and drain the spinach and if possible use a salad spinner to get rid of of most of the water. 

  2. In a large pot fry the garlic with the oil to medium heat for 2 minutes. Add all the spinach and cover with lid. Cook the spinach until wilted nicely and tender approx 3 minutes. 

  3. Squeeze out as much water as you can from the spinach and let it cool. Once cold, chop the cooked spinach finely. 

  4. In a large terrine mix all the ingredients together. Chop the basil and add into the mix. 

  5. With floured hands — prepare the gnudi rolling a small amount of mix into a ball the size of a table tennis ball. Place some flour into a tray and roll the gnudi into it like this they will
    be nicely coated.

  6. Plunge the gnudi in a pot of simmering salted water and once they come out on the surface, fish them out and place them on a large serving plate. 

  7. In a small pot melt the butter and the safe together. Sprinkle the gnudi with more grated parmigiano and when the butter and safe are foaming, pour it over them. Serve nice and hot!

Buon Appetito!
