These Ricotta Dumplings are so luxurious, but don’t be deterred by the “dumpling” word. They’re not hard to make. Serve them over a red sauce or serve them over an arugula salad topped with lemon & oil dressing and Parmesan cheese.

  • 1 Bunch Spinach (Trimmed)
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 1/2 Cups Grated Parmesan Cheese (Divided)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Cups Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 Cup Unbleached Flour
  1. Bring large-size pot of water to a medium-high heat. Add spinach and cook 3 minutes until just wilted. Remove from water and rinse under cold water. Squeeze water out of spinach and then chop them.
  2. In large-size bowl beat eggs. Add ricotta, spinach, kosher salt, pepper and 1 1/4 Cups Parmesan. Add flour and combine well. Add more flour as needed to form a sticky dough. Form dough into balls.
  3. Bring large-size pot of water to a simmer. In batches gently lower dumplings into simmering water and cook about 5 minutes until they rise to the surface and are firm. Remove dumplings with slotted spoon. Let water drain off.
  4. Transfer to platter of arugula salad topped with lemon & oil dressing. Finish off with remaining Parmesan cheese.
  5. Serve immediately.
