    30 mins


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add gnocchi and cook, stirring often, until plumped and starting to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and onion to the pan and cook, stirring, over medium heat, for 2 minutes. Stir in garlic and water. Cover and cook until the onion is soft, 4 to 6 minutes. Add chard (or spinach) and cook, stirring, until starting to wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, beans and pepper and bring to a simmer. Stir in the gnocchi and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling, about 3 minutes.

Very hearty - good for those "no meat Mondays." I was a little concerned about not boiling the gnocchi first but just browning it in the sauté pan - this does not cook it completely, but it cooks through and becomes tender when you add it back to the pan at the end of the process. Used broth instead of water, added a splash of red wine vinegar at the end for a little acidity (always use vinegar when I'm making chard, spinach or kale) and added capers and olives just to have a bit more interest to the dish. I used the Italian cheeses but I think goat or feta would have been good too - making it more greek than italian. Very tasty, very flexible.

I am a carnivore and I LOVE this recipe. So filling and flavorful - and healthy! I use bagged spinach. Also - this is the first recipe my son (16) ever "cooked". It's that easy! :)

To boost nutrition and taste, omit the gnocci and add another can of beans.

Made it exactly as directed. I was a little worried that there wasn't salt added but after making it, it really doesn't need any! Perfectly flavorful as is!

This was pretty easy to make and yummy. I liked how the gnocchi was browned first!

Loved this recipe, but tweaked it just a bit. I added celery with the onions, used chicken stock in place of water, and also added cooked shredded chicken, paprika, and chili powder. I topped it with mozzarella and crumbled goat cheese and it melted in to give it a great flavor. Yum!!
