Author Notes

Dumplings made with leftover bread and fresh spinach, Gorgonzola fondue and organic pears, sautéed in sweet Ramandolo wine. A poor recipe that has been renewed with smart food pairings to stimulate the gustatory spectrum. It respects the traditional tastes and flavors from Friuli, using an elegant and particular wine: Ramandolo. It gives a sweet and aromatic note to the dish. —Kevin Feragotto

What You'll Need
  • • 500 grams leftover bread
  • 200 grams fresh spinach
  • 150 grams Gorgonzola cheese
  • 200 milliliters diary milk
  • 20 grams grated parmesan cheese
  • 8 grams black pepper powder
  • 10 grams salt
  • 60 grams butter
  • 25 milliliters olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 50 milliliters Ramandolo wine
  • 2 pears
  1. Take a pot, add a bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Cook the spinach for no more than 5 min., pouring a glass of water. Put aside some spinach leaves (the little ones) and fry them. You will use them as decoration.
  2. Crumble the leftover bread. In the meanwhile, take a little bowl and beat the eggs by using a kitchen whisk. Add a pinch of black pepper. Combine all the ingredients and blend them. Pour 100 ml of milk and blend again. You will obtain a malleable dough. Play with your hands and form little balls. Strew them with some grated parmesan. Cook the balls in boiling water for 5-6 min.
  3. Take a pan and melt the Gorgonzola cheese by adding the remaining milk. You will obtain a delicious and smooth cream.
  4. Serve hot.
