Directions
  1. Combine spinach, ricotta, Parmesan and egg yolks in a food processor. Pulse to combine. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stir in flour.
  2. Roll small portions of dough into ¾-inch balls (using a small cookie scoop helps) and transfer them to a tray or baking sheet as they are finished. Drop gnudi into boiling salted water and cook until they rise to the top, 3 to 5 minutes.
