What is Gnudi?
Yep - that is correct - when Mr. John and I were eating tonight, I asked him what these reminded him of and he said ravioli - so I googled it and found the above definition.... I first saw this recipe in my May 2011 Food Network. I followed the recipe as is and you can find it at their website here
Since this is the first time I have made anything like this, here is a step-by-step... and John gave this 3.5 stars - he had seconds and he would have given it 4 stars if it had meatballs! Meat - it's what he likes for dinner!
Be sure to defrost the squeeze the spinach very well
Add the ricotta cheese, parm cheese, 2 eggs, flour, S&P and freshly grated nutmeg
Mix well and scoop into balls
Make sure your hands are well floured and then shape and roll lightly into additional flour
Have a large pot of salted boiling water going and add about 8 at a time to cook. Remove with a slotted spoon about 5 minutes after boiling
Meanwhile have some marinara sauce simmering that has some butter whisked in
Place dumplings into sauce and gently cover... serve and mangia! I will definitely be making this again... maybe with meatballs :-)
