Recently, I was put on a low fat high fiber diet with lots of leafy greens. I have been struggling to find recipes that are quick and easy. This one is perfect. Beans for fiber, leafy greens and I substituted reduced fat mozzarella to make it even lower in fat. Loved it and as other comments suggest it is very easy to substitute other foods in and out.

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.

I used spinach instead of chard, and added my own Italian spice mix (pretty generously) to plain diced tomatoes instead of finding flavored tomatoes, and it came out great
My family really liked this dish. Very tasty with a lot of flavors and textures going on. Used potato gnocchi with basil in it and spinach instead of chard. No leftovers for me for work. Oh well.... Will definitely make again
I made the recipe as followed, and found it horribly bland. It just did not taste much of anything, and I couldn't tell there were any spices at all in the dish. Not surprising as this recipe relies on all the spices from your canned tomatoes. Also, there is no salt in this recipe -- probably relying on the canned tomatoes and cheese but my tomatoes had no salt added.
So, the quick fix was to simply add spices! I added some salt and more pepper. I then generously sprinkled Dried Oregano, Basil, and Thyme and mixed it until the flavor got where I wanted it spice wise.
I topped the dish with fresh basil as well for an added burst of freshness.
In the end after adding the additional spices, it was a good and very filling meal. The gnocchi and beans fill you up fast! I did not miss the meat in this dish at all.
this is a meatless-Monday staple for us. Easy to swap out greens, beans or other veggies you have on hand. Meat-eating husband forgets it's vegetarian, and my babies ages 2 and 1 love it, too.
