Ricotta and spinach gnocchi

This recipe I adapted from:

Note: if you are not really a fan of spinach (like my big sis) then these probably aren't for you. If you LOVE spinach (like my mum) then these are awesome.

Ricotta and spinach gnocchi

250g spinach (I used the frozen box coles brand)

75g low-fat ricotta

1 egg yolk

50g grated parmesan


25g plain flour + extra for your hands

Defrost spinach and squeeze out as much water as possible (I put it in a microfibre cloth and just squeezed it out over the sink). In a bowl, mix ricotta, parmesan, nutmeg and spinach until just combined (make sure ricotta is spread throughout and not in lumps). Add flour and egg yolk, mix until just combined. Flour your hands. Take small amount out of bowl at a time, roll into little rectangles (about 2cm long) and put on lightly floured board.

In a large saucepan, boil some salted water. Add gnocchi - it is cooked when it rises to the surface.
