  1. In a bowl, mash the potatoes until very smooth. Add the spinach, egg yolks, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  2. With an electric mixer, incorporate the flour and the basil a little at a time, mixing until the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F. Butter a large baking dish.
  4. Create the gnocchi using a teaspoon to shape the mixture into little balls the size and shape of quail eggs.
  5. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the gnocchi a few at a time, until they rise to the surface.
  6. Drain on paper towels and place in the buttered dish. Brush generously with melted butter and sprinkle with Parmesan.
  7. Bake 20 minutes, then run under the broiler just long enough to melt the cheese.
