I've been looking for tasty ways to cook spinach and wild greens because they are so healthful. This one is fantastic. These are called Gnudis in Florence because they are "nude", e.g. missing the pasta on the outside. These are sort of like a spinach ravioli without the pasta. If that doesn't sound all that flavorful to you, wait till you sink your teeth into one of these. They pack an amazing amount of flavor! Our kids loved them too. And by leaving off the pasta, you cut the work at least in half. All in all, these took me about 30 minutes and it would be less the second time. A must try! I adapted this from a recipe in the "Red, White and Greens" cookbook by Faith Willinger. A good one.
