  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Place tomato in base of a 2L rectangular baking dish. Process spinach in food processor until finely chopped. Add ricotta, onion, garlic, allspice, mozzarella and egg to food processor and process until combined. Season. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in flour to make a soft dough.
  2. Using lightly floured hands, shape dough mixture into 20 x 3cm-long logs. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  3. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil over high heat. Cook dumplings, in 2 batches, for 3 minutes or until dumplings float to the surface. Use a slotted spoon to transfer dumplings to a plate.
