Girl, I can't buy them, or I fight with DH over eating too many!! (Or rather eating them all before he gets them )

Re: Anybody have a great recipe for spinach dip or something else fun to do for spina

Priest Chokers! It's work, but it's delicious!
Italian cuisine has plenty of recipes called strozzapreti, strangolapreti, strangulaprieviti and so on. They all hint at the fact that priests had (have) a reputation for being gourmands. Legend wants that some of them liked these dishes so much they ended choking themselves upon them. Plus, given the role the Church has always played in Italy, it was always expected for parishioners to be kind enough to present their priest with food presents. This probably did not always happen out of free will but more out of social pressure and dishes with such names were born. So don't be surprised if you've seen or made a similarly named recipe: there are many different ones, all traditional." From:
http://ilforno.typepad.com/il_forno/...s_dumplin.html

I usually make these vegan since I'm allergic to dairy, but I wrote this with "regular" ingredients for you. Enjoy!

2 c. Ricotta cheese
1 lb. fresh spinach (cleaned, trimmed, cooked, squeezed dry, and chopped)
OR a 10 oz. pckg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry (quick-thaw in microwave right in the box for 5 minutes)
1 c. unbleached flour
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. salt

freshly-ground black pepper to taste
pinch of freshly-ground nutmeg

Mix together all of the ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill for an hour or more. Scoop spoonfuls of the mixture (about the size of a small walnut) onto a well-floured surface and then form into balls with floured hands. Place on floured cookie sheets and refrigerate until time to cook.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop the dumplings (about 10 at a time) into the boiling water and boil gently for about 4-5 minutes. Scoop them into a colander with a slotted spoon. Drain them and place them in a greased baking dish. Drizzle them with a 1/4 c. of melted butter, and sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake for about 15 minutes, then serve hot.

Yum... thanks for all the background too- I always love reading cookbooks that give a story with the recipe!
