Spinach Gnocchi with Shaved Ricotta Salata
Star chef Marc Vetri makes his terrific, tender spinach gnocchi with brown butter and three types of cheese. They're more intensely flavorful than the traditional ricotta kind. Different varieties of spinach will yield different quantities of puree. This recipe was tested using fresh curly spinach from the farmers' market. If you are using baby spinach, or even pre-trimmed spinach, you will need about 1 pound rather than the 2 1/2 pounds called for below.
