In this one-skillet supper, we toss dark leafy greens, diced tomatoes and white beans with gnocchi and top it all with gooey mozzarella. Serve with a mixed green salad with vinaigrette.

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 16-ounce package shelf-stable gnocchi, (see Tip)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup water
  • 6 cups chopped chard leaves, (about 1 small bunch) or spinach
  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings
  • 1 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese


  • Active

  • Ready In

  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.
  • Tip: Look for shelf-stable gnocchi near other pasta in the Italian section of most supermarkets.

I like this recipe. It turned out well and the end product looked exactly as the picture. I would make it again, but please note that it's a heavier dish.

I made this recipe using the ingredients listed. The cheeses mix with the liquid and make a creamy sauce. This is one of my go-to vegetarian recipes. Love it.

I used fresh tomatoes and cooked dried beans rather than canned. I added a bit of Italian dressing seasoning (Good Seasons) with the fresh tomatoes. Delicious!

This sounds delicious and I will definitely make it. HOWEVER, why do recipe-makers have you add canned tomatoes without indicating whether they should be drained or not? Just a tad frustrating......

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!
