How to prepare delicious spinach and ricotta balls with Parmesan

  • Wash, trim and sort the spinach, removing the thick stalks and place in a saucepan dripping wet.
  • Cook over a medium heat until it collapses.
  • Drain the spinach into a strainer, refresh with cold water, then drain, pressing slightly and chop finely.
  • Mix together the spinach, ricotta, flour and eggs and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  • Then take teaspoonfuls of the mixture and form into balls with wet hands.
  • Gradually drop the spinach balls into 2 L of boiling, lightly salted water and simmer very gently over a low heat for 6-8 minutes, until they rise to the surface.
  • Take out of the pan and drain on kitchen paper.
  • To serve, arrange the spinach balls on plates, pour melted butter around and sprinkle with Parmesan.
  • Garnish with basil.
