These are pretty quick and serving them on heirloom tomatoes is so yummy! I froze mine before cooking – lesson learned the hard way in the past, don’t ask 🤣.
12 oz frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed as dry as possible
1 1/2 c ricotta
1/2 c grated Parmesan
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 1/4 c flour
4 – 6 heirloom tomatoes, sliced thin
1/2 c Basil
salt and pepper
Toasted pine nuts
Combine spinach, ricotta, parm, zest, flour, and eggs in a bowl and mix well. Place on lightly floured surface and divide into to balls. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick rope, cut into 1/2 in pieces and place on a floured baking sheet.
Cook Gnocchi in a large saucepan of boiling salted. Gnocchi are done when they float.
Divide tomatoes among plates, top with Basil, Gnocchi and pine nuts – drizzle with a little olive oil.
