Steam, microwave or saute the spinach until wilted, them squeeze all
excess moisture out of the leaves. Finely chop and place in a large
bowl. Add the 5 tablespoons flour, parmigiano cheese, ricotta cheese,
eggs and salt and pepper to taste. If the mixture seems particularly
moist, add a little more flour. Bring a large pot of water to the boil
and salt generously. Meanwhile, shape the mixture into walnut sized
balls or ovals and coat in extra flour. Set aside on a floured towel.
Meanwhile make the tomato sauce. Heat the olive oil in a saute pan and
add the tomatoes. Cook until the liquid evaporates a little, then add
chopped olives, parsley and crushed saffron threads. Add salt and
pepper to taste and mix well. Boil the gnocchi a few at a time just
until they rise to the surface and place in individual oiled ovenproof
ramekins. Spoon over enough tomato sauce to cover, top with extra
grated parmigiano cheese and bake at 220c. for 10 minutes until
bubbling. Serve immediately. Converted by MC_Buster. Per serving: 978
