FOR GNOCCHI: Place spinach in kitchen towel and squeeze until very dry. Set aside. Blend feta and egg in processor until smooth. Add spinach and blend until smooth. Add ricotta and Parmensan; process to blend. Add 1 cup flour and salt; blend using on/off turns. Add one cup flour; blend using on/off turns. Flour large baking sheet. Turn out dough onto floured surface. Gently knead dough until smooth and firm, adding up to 1/4 cup more flour 1 tablespoon at a time if dough is too sticky, about 2 minutes. Roll out dough to 1/2- inch-thick square. Cut into 1-inch-wide strips. Roll each strip into 1/2- inch-diameter rope. Cut each rope into 1 1/4-inch-long pieces. Arrange on prepared sheet.

Add Gnocchi to sauce and simmer until Gnocchi are heated through and coated with sauce. Serve with Parmesan.
