  • Summary

    These Italian dumplings are essentially ravioli without the pasta covering. For best results, use fresh ricotta cheese, which can be found in Italian markets or specialty stores. Semolina is best for coating the baking sheet; you can substitute flour, but be careful that the gnudi are not absorbing too much of it.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound fresh spinach, large stems removed, washed well
    • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese (about 6 ounces), preferably fresh, drained for 30 minutes in a fine sieve
    • 3/4 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (about 1 ounce), plus more for serving
    • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
    • Pinch of freshly ground pepper
    • 2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    • Semolina, for dusting
    • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
    • 8 to 10 leaves coarsely chopped fresh sage, plus about 8 whole leaves
