IntroductionLike tortellini without the pasta! Like tortellini without the pasta!
1 10 oz. package frozen spinach
1 15 oz. package skim ricotta cheese
2-3 T. parmesan cheese, grated
Flour, white or whole wheat
1/2 t. Nutmeg
Salt and Pepper
In a mixing bowl, add spinach, cheeses, nutmeg, and egg, salt and pepper. Mix well. Add just enough flour to make mixture start to ball up. (usually between 1/3 and 1/2 cup if you've dried the spinach enough.)
Create tbsp. sized balls of the mixture (like drop cookie size.)
Bring water to a gentle boil (med-med high heat depending on stove.)
Drop in all spinach balls. Done in 2-4 minutes or when they rise to the top. Remove from water as ready with wire tool or slotted spoon. Great with pasta sauce, or simply good olive oil and a sprinkling of parmesan.
Number of Servings: 4
