This Spinach & Ricotta Dumplings Recipe Is One Italian Recipe You Have Got to Try

Spinach and ricotta dumplings are easy enough for a weeknight meal, but impressive enough for your next dinner party. All you need is a salad and dinner is done. 

You'll need: 

  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry or 2 bunches fresh, cooked, squeezed dry and chopped
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/4 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups milk

Here's how to make them:

  1. Combine the spinach, ricotta, eggs, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well. Flour your hands and shape into 2-inch by 1-inch ovals.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook dumplings in two batches until they float. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add 2 tablespoons flour and cook 1 minute. Gradually add milk, stirring, and cook until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup Parmesan.
  4. Place dumplings in single layer in a baking dish. Spoon sauce over the top and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 15-20 minutes.
