Spinach and Feta Cheese Nudi in a White Cream Sauce


  • In a pot, add water and boil spinach for 1 minute. Remove from pot. Reserve the water. Place the spinach in an ice bath. Strain and dry with some paper towels. Finely chop the spinach and put it in a bowl.
  • Add the feta cheese, gruyere, eggs (beaten), garlic, flour and spices to the spinach and mix well with a spoon.
  • Dust some flour on to a clean working surface.
  • Put the mixture in to a piping bag with a round tip. Squeeze out the dough in straight lines on to the floured surface.
  • Dust a baking sheet with flour, heavily. Using a sharp knife, cut dough in to 1-2 cm pieces. Place on to the floured baking sheet. Shake the baking sheet back and forth so that the flour coats the nudi.
  • They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Remove from the refrigerator at the exact moment you are ready to boil them.
  • In the pot with the water reserved from the spinach, add some salt and bring to a boil. Add the nudi, a few at a time. When they rise to the top, it means they are ready. Remove from the water and place in a pan with some olive oil. Mix well so that they don’t stick together.
  • For the sauce, sauté the garlic clove, whole, until it is golden and has released its flavor. Discard. Add the nudi, give them a stir in the olive oil. Add the heavy cream, and adjust the salt and pepper to taste. As soon as it starts to boil, remove from heat and serve.
