Preparation steps

For the dough: combine flour and eggs, knead unitl smooth dough forms, cover and let rest for 20 minutes. For the filling: heat butter in a pan and saute spinach. Cool and strain ricotta through a sieve into a pan. Combine with egg yolks, Parmesan and parsley. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Divide dough into 2 parts and roll out on a lightly floured surface.
