Ingredients
  • 1¼ cup ricotta cheese
  • 16 oz. fresh spinach
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove
Instructions
  1. Cook the spinach using a large pot with little water (2 inches of water from the bottom), a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of baking soda. I use baking soda to retain the green color of spinach.
  2. Once spinach is cooked remove the extra water from the spinach using the method discussed above.
  3. Finely chop the spinach and place in a bowl.
  4. Remove extra liquid from the ricotta cheese using cheesecloth to squeeze it out.
  5. Add cheeses (ricotta and Parmesan), egg, nutmeg, salt, and garlic.
  6. Mix well, cover and set aside.
