For the spinach and ricotta balls:

• 400 g cooked spinach
• 200 g ricotta
• 2 eggs
• grated parmesan cheese
• a garlic clove
• parsley
• breadcrumbs
• handmade breadcrumbs
• olive oil
• salt and peppercorns

Preparation

Finely chop the garlic and parsley together. Place a handful of the roughly broken up breadcrumbs to soak in either water of milk. Chop the rape and mix with the ricotta, the eggs and a couple of teaspoons of parmesan, salt and pepper. Squeeze out the bread and mix this in also. Mix all of the ingredients well and then form small balls with your hands, roughly the size of an egg. They can be round or oval in shape.
