Drain very well, chop finely and allow to cool.
Mix the cottage cheese, egg yolks, half the Parmesan cheese, the salt, pepper and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl.
Add the cooled spinach and the flour and mix together.
Take a spoonful of the mixture and using a little flour shape it into a small ball, flouring your hands if necessary.
Continue in this way until all the mixture is used.
Drop the dumplings into a pot of boiling water, about 10-12 at a time, and cook for 4—5 minutes.
Continue in this way until all the dumplings are cooked.
Melt the butter.
Place the dumplings on a hot serving dish and pour the butter over them.
Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
