Going Gnudi Tonight – Spinach Gnudi with Sage Butter

Going Gnudi today.

What is Gnudi?

Gnudi (yep…pronounced “Nudie”…see why I love this already?) is ricotta cheese dumplings, and different from Italian Gnocchi (pronounced ‘Neeyoh-kee’), which is a type of delicious potato pasta that takes more time, kneading, and work.

With the brilliant sunshine this morning and cooler fall air, I actually woke up thinking about Gnudi today. Terrible.

I’m going to go with it! I say tonight for Sunday dinner, I’ll make Spinach Gnudi with Sage butter. For those of you who love Italian food, but don’t want it to be completely carbtastic — or for those of you who have gluten-free diets — this is a great meal. For GF – substitute the gluten free flour of your choice – I would think rice flour would keep the flavors clean. I’m willing to bet Gnudi is kid-friendly too and you can sneak a good amount of veggies in it.

Once I get the hang of this recipe, I’ll continue to mix it up later by making butternut squash or pumpkin versions!
