This is a recipe that Popeye would be proud of. Packed with spinach and creamy ricotta, these little morsels are like soft pillows: delicate and so easy to make. You could even serve them with a little red sauce, but for easier cleanup, I highly recommend just a little sprinkle of parmesan cheese and that's it!
10 Ounce (Frozen)
Whole milk ricotta cheese
1 Cup (16 tbs)
2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
1. Defrost spinach.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine spinach, ricotta cheese, flour and grated parmesan.
3. Add egg yolk and blend it well in food processor to make dough.
4. Make small gnocchi balls with this dough and drop it into boiling water.
5. When cooked through, place these spinach gnocchi onto a plate.
Finally, I have a delicious recipe -- that you don't have to eat with a spoon -- for all those little ones without teeth. I keep talking to parents whose 12, 13 even 14 month olds still don't have teeth. They really want to move beyond purees, but need a recipe soft enough for their little ones to chew (or gum). These spinach gnocchi balls are so heavenly that Kenya only got his mitts on 8 or so before the grownups had eaten them all up!
