Cook the spinach
Prepare the gnudi dough
- Measure ¼ cup [½ cup] flour for the gnudi; set aside the rest for dusting.
- Crack the egg into a small bowl and season lightly with salt and pepper. With a whisk or fork, lightly beat until just blended. Measure half for the gnudi; save the rest for another use. [Use 1 egg; save the remaining egg.]

Shape and cook the gnudi
Working in batches if needed, carefully add the gnudi to the pot of simmering water and cook, stirring occasionally to prevent the gnudi from sticking, until cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain the gnudi, add to the pan with the brown butter, and toss gently to coat.
While the gnudi cook, prepare the tomato salad.

- Strip the basil leaves from the stems; if desired, coarsely tear the leaves.
- Squeeze the spinach.

- Time the gnudi.
- Strip and tear the basil leaves.
