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.

"Skillet Gnocchi is now one of my favorite go-to meals. Easy and delicious. I do usually use spinach, as opposed to chard (my husband dislikes it). It's great either way. "

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!

Quick, One Pot, Healthy
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!

Easy and very tasty!

This is a very tasty dish which was easy to make. I like a lot of flavor, so I added extra garlic and Italian seasonings, and added red pepper flakes.

Easy to make
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.

So easy, very tasty,
Fight over left overs.

Hubby approved and we even "fight" over who gets the left overs. haha

Easy and fast
