Zucchini and ricotta dumplings in spinach and blue cheese cream, with walnuts

For the dumplings:
Grate 4 zucchini, add 500g of ricotta, 2 tbsp of grated Parmigiano Reggiano, 2 eggs, salt and pepper to taste,  and enough breadcrumbs to make the mixture workable (about 2 tbsp) so that you can make about 25 golf ball-sized balls. Place the balls on an oven tray lined with baking paper and spray with a little oil. bake at 180C for about 20-25 minutes, or until they start to golden (turn over once if they seem to cook too much on the bottom). Cool down

For the sauce:
In a casserole place 4 frozen spinach portions with 250 ml of vegetables stock. Simmer until the spinach is defrosted, then add 300 ml of cream and 125 g of gorgonzola or blue cheese, cubed. Simmer and stir until the cheese has melted. 

Add the ricotta dumplings into the simmering sauce and stir gently, until the balls are well coated and simmer for 5 more minutes. Top with chopped parsley and walnut halves. Serve hot, with plenty of sauce.
