I made a few changes only because I used the ingredients that I had on hand so I "made do." Used the Trader Joes potato gnocchi "pillows" that are stuffed with tomato sauce and mozzarella. Also used a little bit of marinara sauce along with a handful of heirloom cherry tomatoes. Lastly, I had a bag of frozen marinated grilled artichokes from Costco that was used in place of the can artichokes. The chickpeas and red wine vinegar are such a great surprise! Read More

This is a great recipe. I would say it needs more salt and more cook time than suggested but the turn out is incredible. Read More

Super impressed with this meal. It's flavorful and filling. I forgot it was meatless. Like a previous reviewer i also burnt the gnocchi. I used a stainless steel pot and the burnt parts stuck to the pot. Next time i'll either lower the heat or add more oil for cooking the gnocchi then drain the oil out afterward. Other than this annoyance the meal turned out amazing gnocchi and all. Read More

Pretty flavorful the only changes I made was I used Trader Joe s cauliflower gnocchi and kept a very close eye on stirring it to ensure the gnocchi didn t stick as another reviewer wrote. I also felt it needed a touch of parm so I added to individual dishes. Overall very good! Read More

I was afraid I'd have to add additional marinara but this had so much flavor! I used marinated artichoke hearts so they'd be more tender and liked that a lot. I also skipped the olives because canned tomatoes are vinegary enough as it is. Read More

Made this for lunch today. I don't usually eat artichoke hearts just never really had them. A lot of flavor and if it helps me be healthier I am all in. Read More

We really enjoyed this meal-- I substituted northern beans for the chickpeas and didn't have olives but after we ate it ALL... couldn't wait to make it again! Husband didn't even notice it was meatless. Read More

Not bad. Easy to make. Just not as flavorful as I would have hoped for. Read More

This is by far the most infuriating meal I ve ever attempted to prepare. I don t use non-stick because i don t enjoy carcinogenic products in my food. There is absolutely no way to cook the gnocchi in stainless steal and this meal was ruined before it started. Hopefully you have better luck. Read More

I added the bean juice from the can subbed capers for the olives and added fennel seed. I might skip the vinegar next time because I don't care for the acidity. I would make it again. Read More

I just started the M3 Modere challenge and I was looking for recipes. I made this recipe but decided to roast all ingredients together and then mixed with the gnocchi. I also added mushrooms and some Greek seasoning to the veggies while roasting. It came out wonderful. I would definitely make this again. Read More

It was great as it was but I tend to add chili pepper flakes to many dishes and this dish was delicious. Read More
