Spinach Gnudi


  • Stir together ricotta, parmesan, spinach and salt.
  • Sprinkle 1 cup of semolina on a baking sheet.
  • Dust hands with semolina and gently roll ricotta into balls about 30 grams (2 Tbsp) in size.
  • The gnudi are quite soft and require a gentle touch.
  • Place on semolina lined tray and roll to coat.
  • Continue until tray is full adding semolina as needed and keeping hands clean and dusted to prevent sticking.
  • Place tray in the fridge, uncovered overnight.
  • (The semolina helps pull the moisture out of the gnudi).
  • When ready to eat, remove from fridge, and dust off excess semolina from gnudi.
  • Cook gnudi in large pot of boiling salted water until gnudi are floating, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in large saute pan, heat butter over medium heat until browned, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Add sage leaves and remove from heat.
  • Remove gnudi from water into pan with butter, toss to coat.
  • Serve with parmesan and pepper and additional butter drizzle.
