Love this recipe...and easy to take shortcuts!
Being that I have a toddler and work full-time (and I'm not one of those 'supermom' moms who can somehow make homemade ice cream and pasta from scratch every night), this is a regular in our rotation. I shortcut by using a jar of good quality marinara sauce. I use a brick of frozen spinach (thawed) instead of the chard, top the whole mess with mozzarella, and throw the skillet in the broiler to melt the cheese. Super easy and delicious.
Loved this dish. Easy, savory, and healthy. While cooking this dish, our 4-year-old said, "It smells like pizza!" so I already knew her taste buds were willing. Our 5-year-old cleaned out his entire dish. The picky 8-year-old ate some but she wasn't too thrilled with the gnocchi. When I added more grated Parmesan cheese to her food, she ate more. My parents enjoyed it and my husband had seconds. I liked it, too! I followed the recipe as written except I put the chard in the food processor instead of chopping it by hand; I usually do the same with spinach before I add it to pasta sauce so the texture is more palatable to my children. I will make this again. I was surprised at how flavorful this dish turned out and am pleased with the chard since it was the first time I've ever used it.
I am 17 and I managed to make this all by myself, for my family. Best part is that they had NO IDEA it was healthy. My dad said "I'm glad you didn't try to make me your healthy s**t".... ohhhhh if only he knew... but this recipe is going to stay my little secret ;)
