It sounded really fancy but all I could think of was: gnocchi without potatoes? Really?!
Potatoes are the main feature of gnocchi so I thought that this new version's taste would be very poor...boy, was I wrong!
It was so good that I had to find a way to make that recipe at home and here it is!
I believe that it is much lighter than the potato one, you can really feel it as you eat it. Let's not forget that eating spinach is healthy and I bet that even people (including children) who don't like spinach will love this recipe!
It's delicious and even though handmade pasta is usually quite long to make, gnocchi is super fast!
Step 1: Ingredients
- 100 gr (1 cup) spinach
- 200 gr (1 cup) ricotta
- 125 gr (1 cup) all purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 40 gr (a little less than 1/2 cup) parmesan cheese
Step 2: Mixing
When your spinach is not as hot anymore, squeeze it with your hands to remove as much water as possible. Spinach retain a lot of water so you may have to squeeze it more than once.
Put your spinach with ricotta in a mixer and mix them together.
Add the egg and parmesan cheese and keep mixing until you obtain a green "sauce".
If you don't have a mixer, you can chop your spinach and mix it with the other ingredients using a fork.
