600 gr of herbs

300 g cheese

100 gr of grated Parmesan cheese

1 egg

Salt, pepper, breadcrumbs to taste


Boil the herbs in abundant salted water for about ten minutes, so that they soften well. Once cooked, drain and let them cool in a colander so as to lose all the excess water, squeeze them with your hand if necessary and finally cut them into small pieces. Subsequently, separately in a bowl, mix the herbs, egg, softened ricotta, salt, pepper and breadcrumbs to create a compact mixture. With your hands, form meatballs and pass them in the breadcrumbs. Put the meatballs in a baking dish with a drizzle of oil and cook at 200 degrees for 20 minutes.
