Spinach Gnudi

Gnudi is sort of like a cheesey gnocchi, made from ricotta cheese and mixed with spinach it is a full healthy meal. Serve along side some crusty bread and you will have a happy family.


  • Prep Time : 25 min
  • Cook Time : 15 min
  • Ready Time : 40 min




  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 pound bag frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 3 eggs
  • a few grates of fresh grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons all purpose flour, plus about 1 cup for coating
  • 4 cups favorite tomato sauce


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

In a large bowl, mix ricotta, spinach, Parmesan cheese, and eggs. Stir in nutmeg, salt, pepper, and 5 tablespoons flour. Form mixture in to small, flattened balls using extra flour to hold it together and coat it. Slide formed gnudi into the boiling water. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan; work in batches if necessary. Remove the gnudi using a slotted spoon after they float to the top and have cooked for about 4 minutes, allow to sit on a large plate.

Meanwhile bring a medium frying pan to medium low heat.  Pour in your favorite sauce, from a jar or homemade, bring to a low simmer.  Place gnudi dumplings inside the sauce, heat for another minute or two and serve.

    This is too salty-tomato sauce is full of salt.
    What else can be used in its place?

    There are no/lo salt tomato sauces out there — Trader Joe’s has one. Also you could use Pom (or is it Pomi?) strained tomatoes (it’s like tomato sauce w/o the seasonings), & add your own seasonings.

  3. Neither one of the ladies who have previously written did not mention the gnudi or how they liked that component of the dish.

  4. This sounds delicious. It has all the ingredients I like and sounds easy to fix. Can’t wait to try it.

  5. Sorry if my prior comment came off as criticism, that’s not how it was intended. I was just hoping for some insight into the taste & texture of the dish.

  6. Instead of flour can I use Quinoa? Also using crushed garlic and lemon sauce (sold at whole foods and zankou) with great crushed tomates and half can tomato paste makes easy breesy delicious saucee

  7. I’m going to make this.I bet its awesome. Thanks for sharing.
