Gnudi… Sounds like “Nudie,” Tastes Like Heaven! It’s like ravioli without all the carbs

Low Carb Spinach Gnudi When I was growing up, my Mom used to make home made ravioli.  I remember helping her make the dough, fill it, pinch it & cut it into squares using a special little roller with a zig-zagged edge (like pinking shears).  MAAAAN, were they good with that homemade “Sunday Gravy” that would simmer on the stove for hours on end, filling the house with the enticing smell of tomatoes, herbs and garlic.

When I was growing up, my Mom did most of the cooking.  Because Dad was too busy hunting, gathering and fighting off the dinosaurs, of course!  Ha!  Now Mom was an awesome cook, but when Dad stepped up to the stove, you knew something good was going to happen.  He was Italian, so that something almost always involved tomatoes or tomato sauce, garlic and oregano. Cod is such a wonderful fish, firm, tasty and not too “fishy.”  And I LOOOOOOVE that it’s...
