Spinach and ricotta gnocchi are a first course reserved for my very favorite guests…and they are a traditional Tuscan favorite! These have a vibrant forest green color and are light and fluffy. As with most dough preparations for gnocchi, it is the amount of flour used that will determine if their texture is light or leaden. Be sure to really squeeze as much water as possible out of the spinach or you will end up using too much flour. Patience is a virtue when making gnocchi.
