From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Made with fresh Swiss chard or spinach, these are so easy and so rewarding to eat! Make them up to 1 day in advance and refrigerate. Simply reheat when ready to serve.
1 pound Swiss chard leaves or spinach ((6 - 8 cups raw leaves)
Wash chard or spinach, removing very large large stalks. Tear leaves into small pieces. You will have about 6 - 8 cups or so of leaves. Place in glass or ceramic batter bowl.. Cook in microwave 1-2 minutes, or until wilted. Allow to cool a few minutes, and then add the ricotta, flour, nutmeg, 1/2 cup of the cheese, egg yolks, salt and pepper. Blend well. With floured hands, shape the mixture into little ovals about 2 inches in length. Place in a single layer on a floured surface. Bring a large pot of water to a full boil, adding a pinch of salt. Working in batches, cook the gnocchi until they come to the surface and float. Using a slotted spoon or mesh strainer, remove and place on a platter. Continue with remaining gnocchi. Melt the butter and sprinkle over the gnocchi and sprinkle on the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Serve immediately.
