Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add greens to pot and cook for 7 minutes or until tender. Using a slotted spoon, place in a cold water bath, then drain well and squeeze out any excess water; chop finely and set aside.
Bring another large pot of salted water to a boil.
Place 1 cup of the flour in a shallow pie plate.
In a large bowl, stir together chopped greens, 3/4 cup remaining flour, Parmesan, yogurt, ricotta, eggs, egg yolk, salt and pepper. Drop mixture by the heaping tablespoonful into pie plate; gently roll to coat with flour, then toss between hands to tap off any excess
