Only change was baby spinach because store was out of Swiss chard. This recipe is now a staple and favorite in our house. I love it because it is like the Italian peasant food I was brought up on. Thank you for an excellent recipe!!
Made this last night. Got great reviews from the family. Added garlic floured sautéed chicken breast cubes (did these first then the gnocchi and added them at the end) for my teenage son who craves meat. This recipe would have been fine without the addition. It is hearty and flavorful
I made this recipe last week. I substituted chard with arugula (chard didn't look good in the market!) And used smoked Mozzarella. Served it with a shaved Parmesan and fennel sauce with dill/lemon dressing. It was a hit:-)
Entire family loved this dish... Ages 5-92 No leftovers Served it with fresh bread and a small green salad Yum No recommendations for change. Try it as is once as written and next time around tweek according to family preference. Yum No regrets I do cook my own beans and have lots of fresh tomatoes in he back yard.. Next week I will try it again with those alterations
We made this for dinner tonight and Hubby loved it and said we need to make it again. I liked it too but I'm not a big fan of beans. Still I'd eat this again. We used homemade gnocchi and Monterey Jack cheese instead of mozzarella and parmigiano-reggiano instead of Parmesan. I added a little bit of red pepper flakes too. Hubby thinks it's perfect. Thanks Eating Well!
Husband loved it and said "let's add this to our regular routine dinners". Pretty quick and easy to make a little watery...I may leave out the 1/2 cup water next time I don't think its too necessary. I will definitely be making this one again and maybe I'll finish it in the oven on broil for a couple minutes for some crispy cheese.
This recipe could be healthier. I used fresh tomatoes not canned. I also used beans that I cooked and soaked instead of canned beans. I think the amount of spinach or chard should have been doubled. Everything else was good but I might have spiced it up with a touch of jalapeño.
Simple and delicious recipe. The entire family loved it!! I used some low sodium vegetable broth and a bit of Locatelli cheese for some added flavor. It was a very cost effective and filling meal as well.
Delicious meal! Even my kids are enjoying the break from old heavy foods! I used thinly sliced chicken breast which I added in with the onion to simmer. The broth makes liquid so that water isn't even needed for garlic. So much flavor! Paired with an Olive Garden style salad.
Amazing mid-week meal! One of the best and easiest-to-prepare one-skillet meals I've ever found. Such a diverse mixture of flavors textures and colors this dish is perfect for two people (with leftovers for the next day) or feeding a family. Reheats the next day very well. I use spinach instead of chard (I like the flavor). I don't even miss the meat the gnocchi is heavy and the beans protein-rich enough without added meat. Pros: Tasty quick colorful nutritious versatile Cons: None
One of the best 1 Pot meals ever! This is a great recipe. It is very flavorful and easy to make. My husband likes it but he misses meat in a no-meat dish. I can quickly thaw frozen shrimp or use leftover cooked chicken and everyone is happy. It turns boring chicken into just the opposite! This recipe is easy to vary - you can use different types of greens beans and or cheese depending on what you like. Don't leave out the tomatoes. They add lots of flavor. I'm making this again this week. Pros: Flavorful filling attractive can use all fresh ingredients easy to make Cons: No meat but easy to add cooked chicken shrimp etc
Loved this meal Recently I was put on a low fat high fiber diet with lots of leafy greens. I have been struggling to find recipes that are quick and easy. This one is perfect. Beans for fiber leafy greens and I substituted reduced fat mozzarella to make it even lower in fat. Loved it and as other comments suggest it is very easy to substitute other foods in and out.
really yummy! I used spinach instead of chard and added my own Italian spice mix (pretty generously) to plain diced tomatoes instead of finding flavored tomatoes and it came out great Pros: Tasty even for meat-eaters pretty quick
Delicious. Love one pot meals! My family really liked this dish. Very tasty with a lot of flavors and textures going on. Used potato gnocchi with basil in it and spinach instead of chard. No leftovers for me for work. Oh well.... Will definitely make again Pros: Healthy quick
Great start of a recipe I made the recipe as followed and found it horribly bland. It just did not taste much of anything and I couldn't tell there were any spices at all in the dish. Not surprising as this recipe relies on all the spices from your canned tomatoes. Also there is no salt in this recipe -- probably relying on the canned tomatoes and cheese but my tomatoes had no salt added. So the quick fix was to simply add spices! I added some salt and more pepper. I then generously sprinkled Dried Oregano Basil and Thyme and mixed it until the flavor got where I wanted it spice wise. I topped the dish with fresh basil as well for an added burst of freshness. In the end after adding the additional spices it was a good and very filling meal. The gnocchi and beans fill you up fast! I did not miss the meat in this dish at all. Pros: Quick Easy Mostly shelf stable Cons: Very Bland
Nutritious comfort food! this is a meatless-Monday staple for us. Easy to swap out greens beans or other veggies you have on hand. Meat-eating husband forgets it's vegetarian and my babies ages 2 and 1 love it too. Pros: quick dinner option
Love it Easy to make even I can't mess it up. I don't like cooked spinach so I make sure I use Chard. Only problem I can only get good Chard at Whole Foods which is a little out of the way so I don't make it as often as I like.
heavanly healthy comfort food! This is our family favorite. I use spinach instead of chard and sometimes add bacon when cooking the onion and garlic not much but enough to give it an extra depth without adding too much fat/calories. My kids love the dish as it is filling and comforting. My daughter always requests we leave enough for her to take for her school lunch and even her friends ask to share! I have also added leftover roast chicken and even eliminated the beans and added chicken for a friend who is unable to eat beans and it still tasted yummy. Great with red pepper flakes sprinkled over at serving. All in all a great meal. Pros: Fast delicious healthy
Delicious Healthy & Easy! My husband and I love this recipe! We've only made it with spinach so far and love adding new things like grilled chicken or italian sausage. This meal is so quick and easy we keep the ingredients in our pantry at all times for a quick dinner night! Pros: Easy
A good one-skillet meal Will cook gnocchi longer next time. Added sweet orange peppers and a bit of cubed pork to the basic recipe. Would be good with sliced celery and green peppers too. Added baby spinach for some green.
Very Filling and simple to make My husband and I love this recipe when we just want to use one pan and make a filling meal. This recipe is simple to substitute too. We love it with fresh spinach and black beans too. Pros: Easy ingredients
A hit with my family Like other reviewers I was surprised how good this recipe actually is given the low reviews. I can't understand why some gave it lower ratings. This recipe pulls together quick and my family is thrilled when I make it. I added a little white wine for a variation. I could see this recipe on the menu in a fine restaurant. Don't be afraid to try this!! Pros: Easy hearty delicious
Add Ground Chicken or Turkey I used spinach instead of chard and added ground chicken. It was delicious! I live with a picky adult and a four year old; both agreed it was delicious. They even said it was so good it was like they were eating at a restaurant. This is a big win! Pros: Quick One Pot Healthy Cons: None
Makes a great one-skillet supper I had not previously considered pan-frying gnocchi but have now made several variations of this recipe using chopped fresh chard whole baby spinach or whole baby kale leaves. Once I replaced the beans/cheese with extra-lean hot Italian sausage meat - that was my favourite. I prefer the tiny gnocchetti and make it truly one-skillet by sauteeing the veggies first (peppers are great!) then browning the gnocchetti then adding the tomatoes and allowing to simmer with the lid on until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Done!
This was so good! It will be in my Favorites file for sure! This was so good! It was easy to make. I used spinach and garbanzo beans and followed a few suggestions from previous posters - increased Italian seasonings (basil oregano) black pepper and I used veggie broth in place of water. The hardest thing for me was the gnocchi itself. I had not cooked it but once before and it was a disaster - gummy and yuck! It took 3 times as long to cook it than this recipe said but it was worth the wait - it became light and crunchy. When the dish was finished the combination of tastes and textures was awesome! I could hardly stop eating. I will definitely be making this again. Oh and SALT - I had to add salt - a personal preference. Pros: So easy very tasty
Kids loved it too My husband really liked this. Surprisingly my kids (10 7 & 7) did too (though some of the kids took a little longer to buy in). It was fairly quick to make. That most of the ingredients are from the shelf is great from a last minute dinner perspective. Pros: Quick Cons: A lot of packaged ingredients
Even my kids liked it! I cooked this because I thought it sounded great expecting gracious but negative comments from my family. However my high school kids loved it! (Understand they don't eat anything that is green.) I thought it was great also but was shocked that they did & asked for seconds. Since originally cooking it I lost the recipe so glad to find it again!
Quick and healthy easy meal! I don't know why this has a low rating! It's so yummie! Cooking the gnocchi in the skillet gives it a light crunch which is a great contrast to the other softer ingredients. I really enjoyed the mixture of texture and tastes in every bite. This is a new addition to our regular meal rotation! It's easy it tastes good and has options to add variations (adding other fresh veggies!) Changes... I added two tablespoons of water when I first put the gnocchi in the skillet. The shelf gnocchi seemed too dry so the water helped them plump up. Stirred them and then let them sit in the skillet in a single layer to brown. I would 1/2 the beans myself. I'm not a huge fan of too many white beans. I used an entire bunch of chard. I did make more veg than gnocchi so the extra went into the fridge for lunch today. I threw in a handful or two of spinach for added greens. Today atested better - all the flavors blended really well. Next time I will make them the night before.
Quick and healthy easy meal! I'm not sure why this has a low rating... this dish is great! Each bite has different texture and flavor which keeps it interesting as you eat. It's quick and easy to prepare and well balanced. This is a must have in our meal rotation!
This was awesome! Just what I was looking for. I really enjoyed this recipe. It's easy to make looks beautiful with all of the colors from the chard tomato beans etc. and turned out very well. I'll definitely be making it again. I used shelf-stable whole wheat with sweet potato gnocchi. It was a little watery at first but after it sat a bit was not watery really at all. I'm not sure why so many people gave this bad reviews. Pros: Relatively fast delicious healthy easy Cons: A little bland... I added a little bit of salt more pepper garlic oregano and basil.
Family Favorite I just noticed the low rating on this recipe - we've been making this for a while now and it's a favorite of everyone's - kids included. I make it with spinach. Delicious healthy great! Pros: Delicious!
Delicious - Why the low ratings? One of my favourite Eating Well recipes ever! I get bored when every bite tastes the same and the balance of ingredients in this dish is perfect - every bite tastes a little different than the one before. Don't skimp on the onion garlic or spices or overdo it on e liquid. The recipe is great - my new go-to meal for when the cupboard is bare. Pros: Very easy relatively quick many staples
Fantastic meal To any one turned away by the 2.5 star rating ignore it. This recipe is absolutely delicious. And not just that it's really good for you too. Both my husband and 11 year old scarfed it and wanted more. Pros: vegetarian easy delicious
best vegetarian meal I think this is the only vegetarian meal I've ever made that my husband liked. The tomatoes give it a hearty filling flavor and the gnocchi is a satisfying texture. We use canned tomatoes--fire-roasted with Italian seasoning to kick up the flavor a little and add just a shake or two of red pepper flakes while it's cooking. This became a staple much to my delight because it's really easy to make and you only have one pot to clean afterwards! Ours looked exactly like the photo here. Pros: satisfying texture Cons: add some herbs/red pepper flakes
Flavorful and Easy I've made this according to the recipe with the exception of using gluten free gnocchi which I boil first. My husband loves this recipe even though he doesn't like tomatoes or onions. If you can make someone eat something they don't like and love it that is a good recipe. Pros: Most items are staples or pantry items.
Delicious! This is a go to dish in our house and has been since discovering it a few years ago. I make it just as the recipe states except for using three instead of four cloves of garlic (personal preference) and using fresh spinach instead of chard as I always have spinach on hand. As good as it is on the night I make it it is even better the next night for dinner. Highly recommend. Pros: Easy uses ingredients I have on hand
Adapting to what was on hand I browned the gnocci first and used kale and home canned tomatoes (fresh ones soon!) adding plenty of onion garlic and Italian seasonings. Also tossed in some snow peas fresh from the garden and cooked just until tender crisp. I also used home canned garbanzo beans. Topped with cheese and fresh basil. Delicious! Needed salt with home canned ingredients. I'll add some sweet pepper or banana pepper next time. Quick easy one skillet recipe.
Very good - don't boil gnocchi Great dish - I noticed that many cooks who downgraded the recipe did not actually follow the instructions. The gnocchi cooks in the skillet - no need to boil it before hand. This is a simple dish - no need for extra steps and that ruins the texture of the dish.
Extremely Edible Wow I loved this! I added extra Italian seasoning garlic and mozzarella and it was to die for! I went for the mildest chard - green chard - and was very satisfied. It wasn't bitter at all it actually tasted somewhat sweet. I was even able to accommodate my gluten intolerant brother by boiling roughly cut potatoes for him to have instead of the gnocchi. Very delicious! Pros: Healthy great flavors variety of vegetables Cons: doesn't exactly make 6 servings - little bit less
Anonymous Just finished making and eating this for dinner. Was delicious just what I was hoping for. Followed the recipe as is except didn't add the water. I cannot wait to have more tomorrow!!! Lots of leftovers.
This just did not turn out as I expected. Apparently 7 minutes was too long to cook the gnocchi so mine were extremely mushy. There was far too much liquid so the whole thing was soupy. And because I used swiss chard the whole dish had an appalling pink color that made it look like vomit. The taste wasn't bad but between the looks and the texture most of it went into the trash. And I did make the recipe exactly as listed. Pros: tastes good Cons: looks awful too watery wrong texture
The lone vote of bleah I was disappointed since the ingredients sounded great; but this was a mushy mess. I used Trader Joe's whole-wheat gnocchi and wondered if using traditional would have made a difference but this was nearly inedible. I ended up composting most of it. Pros: Healthy Cons: Mushy and uninteresting
Use your Senses Great recipe to incorporate loads of vitamin A and potassium into your diet while still tasting good. I do however have a few suggestions. First use Vegetable Broth instead of water. This makes this recipe at least twice as good compared to plain water. Choose to lowered sodium variety to stay within the healthy realm. Second use your senses to decide when the Kale has been wilted down enough. From my experience the cook times were at least twice as long to get the right texture and consistency needed in a proper vegetarian dish. Third try the Whole Wheat with Sweet Potato gnocchi for an added degree of complexity coupled with extra health benefits. So would I cook this again? You betcha! Pros: Easy Single Skillet Inexpensive Easily found ingredients Cons: Inaccurate cook times missing proper broth
Delicious! low star ratings are from spammers Made this tonight for the first time. I followed the recipe exactly as written (using spinach instead of chard) and It was delicious! Low ratings for this recipe are from spammers and people who didn't follow the recipe. I hate it when people don't follow a recipe as it is written and then give it a low rating. This was fast easy and delicious! Pros: Fast Easy Delicious Cons: None
Skillet gnocchi w chard rocks This is one of the best recipes ever! The favors really come together. My edits include 1. More garlic 2. Used Tuscan kale 3. 2 pinches of cayenne and 4. additional Italian seasoning
Great Family Weeknight Meal I've been using this recipe regularly for almost two years now and my whole family loves it. You have to use the amount of garlic and onion in the recipe to get maximum flavor. I use kale instead of spinach or chard because I like the way the kale holds up. Pros: Easy cheap and tasty!
Bland The gnocchi was flavorless. Next time I would add some marinara sauce or season the diced tomatoes and let the gnocchi cook longer in the mixture so it would soak up some flavor. Also I would decrease the amount of gnocchi. I also only used 1/4 of an onion since a whole one seemed a bit much.
Can't believe that this is good for you!! Please don't believe the rating stars on this recipe. Some people think its funny to enter nonsense reviews with low ratings. This is a great family meal. Everyone that has eaten it at my house loves it. I use spinach but will try chard when I have some in my garden. I use frozen gnocchi because I couldn't find the other kind. Just boil according to package directions drain and add when you put in the tomatoes and beans. Yummy!! Pros: Easy inexpensive tastes rich filling
Absolutely fantastic Oh my goodness this was absolutely delicious. I made it for my husband and 11 year old they both thought it was great and definitely a keeper. I used spinach instead of chard. The toasting of the gnocchi before cooking really adds an extra little bit of yumminess. Not sure why this is rated so low but ignore the low rating and make this dish. You won't be disappointed. Pros: quick healthy vegetarian delicious
Excellent taste quick prep This has become one of my favorite meals. It is easy made with locally obtainable ingredients and everyone loves it. Pros: Relatively inexpensive delicious Cons: So good that I eat too much of it.
Fast & Tasty I found this recipe when looking for something different to serve our vegetarian son-in-law. It was so quick to make & only required one pan so clean-up was a breeze. I did use spinach instead of chard. I also used diced tomatoes in sauce & added my own fresh Italian herbs which gave it additional flavor & body. The whole family enjoyed it.
Amazing and Yummy Recipe! I LOVE this recipe. I stumbled upon it randomly through Google after searching healthy recipes. I wanted to make it again and couldn't find it too easily. I was heartbroken. But luckily I stumbled back on it again and bookmarked it this time. It's very yummy and you won't feel like crud after eating this filling meal either.:D
How much constantly should support a haircut? Mowing my girlish gink - a crucial example of direct charge scornful depending on the time spent on it. His whisker is piddling like a issue and on better is getting less and less.
I have made this for years as it is one of my family's favourites that they ask for. When my son was 9 he had an Italian friend over on a night when I had planned this...turns out he liked all the ingredients so I went ahead with the recipe. He liked it so much that he asked for the recipe. When he lost it on the way home he insisted that his mom ask me to email it so she could make it that night for supper! Think that says a lot!
fake reviewers giving low stars Not sure what's up with all the fake reviewers typing in kjhewoibdkl and giving 1-2. This is a great dish and the star rating doesn't reflect actual reviewers. I like adding a little more garlic;) Pros: Delicious plant based Cons: none
Quick Delicious & Easy I made this for 2 different departments in my office and everyone LOVED it! The next time I made it for them I switch the spinach for eggplant zucchini & cauliflower. It was a Big hit! Pros: Simple & Healthy Cons: None
SO yummy easy and hearty! This is a definite hit! I used fresh spinach because the store didn't have chard used a lot more mozzarella (misread the amounts while cooking) and added sauteed Italian chicken sausage as a meat element. In about 30 minutes I had a stellar meal that could sell at a restaurant! It is amazing and I will absolutely make this again! Pros: Delicious and so easy! Cons: None!

Good and Easy I don't know why this is rated so low. Had it for the first time tonight and it was very delicious with different flavors from our normal everyday meals. Made it exactly as recipe except my market did not have shelf stable Gnocchi so I had to use frozen. Even my husband liked it. The only change I will make next time is to try it with a little marina it needed more sauce. But otherwise it was extremely good.
Easy and delicious I might forgo the half cup of water next time for a less soupy consistency. I used mustard greens instead of chard and I'm not sure anyone would notice the difference. Spinach might be a bit too bland. The recipe definitely need salt at least half a teaspoon. Pros: Quick to assemble tastes great no unusual ingredients (other than the gnocchi) Cons: Starchy needs salt
Great - so quick healthy and delish I used whole wheat gnocchi and chard with mozzarella and Parmesan the first time and regular gnocchi and kale with provolone (didn't have any mozzarella) and Parmesan the 2nd time. Both were great. It's one of our staple dishes now especially in the fall when the chard is really producing in the garden. The men in my family are always asking 'where's the meat?' whenever I cook vegetarian - not this time.
Easy-Yummy-and Healthy - Oh my! Just made the recipie exactly as written Except I used low sodum tomatoes and added italian seasoning myself. with very little preparation it came together...everyoe loved it...the only other tweak I made was to sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon of red chilies because we like spicy! Into the regular rotation this goes! Pros: plant based quick crowd pleaser
Comfort Food Wonderful comfort meal but needs some minor changes. I added a healthy pinch of red pepper flakes cubed the mozzarella cheese and topped the dish with a chiffonade of fresh basil. Really perked up the flavors. Pros: Easy to prepare; so good Cons: Needs a few tweaks
A Healthy but Filling Dish! I made this for the first time and loved it! It tasted very good (very creamy without the cream). It was a great way to eat chard because it disguises it well. Pros: Healthy filling tasty easy
