Gnudi Balls with spagetti
This is so awesome! These are little spinach and ricotta steamed dumplings (also called "Gnudi", which literally means "nude", because they're the insides of ravioli without the pasta casing.)
1 packet of frozen spinach, thawed 100g ricotta 1 clove of garlic (or more. I like more) 1 egg white 1 table spoon of plain flour 1/4 cup of grated parmesan 1 cup of breadcrumbs 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 tablespoon of finely chopped chives.
Squeeze excess liquid from spinach. Combine spinach, ricotta, garlic, egg white, flour, parmesan, breadcrumbs, nutmeg and chives in a big bowl.
Roll level teaspoons of the mixture into balls.
Place balls in a single layer about 2cm apart in a baking paper lined bamboo steamer fitted to a pot of boiling water.
Steam, covered, for about 10 mins or until dumplings are hot.
Meanwhile make your favourite tomato pasta sauce and cook some pasta.
Place pasta in bowl, pour sauce over, and carefully place gnudi balls on top.
