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!


Spinach 10 Ounce ((Frozen))
Whole milk ricotta cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Parmesan cheese 2/3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
Egg yolk 1 Small
Flour 2 Tablespoon
For topping
Parmesan cheese 2 Tablespoon



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.


6. Sprinkle parmesan cheese and serve.
