  • 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

Preparation

  • 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.

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.
