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. "

Just finished making and eating this for dinner. Was delicious, just what I was hoping for. Followed the recipe as is except didn't add the water. I cannot wait to have more tomorrow!!! Lots of leftovers.


This just did not turn out as I expected. Apparently, 7 minutes was too long to cook the gnocchi, so mine were extremely mushy. There was far too much liquid, so the whole thing was soupy. And, because I used swiss chard, the whole dish had an appalling pink color that made it look like vomit. The taste wasn't bad, but between the looks and the texture, most of it went into the trash. And I did make the recipe exactly as listed.

tastes good
The lone vote of "bleah"

I was disappointed, since the ingredients sounded great; but this was a mushy mess. I used Trader Joe's whole-wheat gnocchi and wondered if using traditional would have made a difference, but this was nearly inedible. I ended up composting most of it.

Every time I use Trader Joe's

Every time I use Trader Joe's gnocchi (ESPECIALLY the frozen kind) it turns into a mushy mess for me.

Use your Senses

Great recipe to incorporate loads of vitamin A and potassium into your diet, while still tasting good. I do however have a few suggestions. First, use Vegetable Broth instead of water. This makes this recipe at least twice as good compared to plain water. Choose to lowered sodium variety to stay within the healthy realm. Second, use your senses to decide when the Kale has been wilted down enough. From my experience the cook times were at least twice as long to get the right texture and consistency needed in a proper vegetarian dish. Third, try the Whole Wheat with Sweet Potato gnocchi for an added degree of complexity coupled with extra health benefits. So would I cook this again? You betcha!

Easy, Single Skillet, Inexpensive, Easily found ingredients
Delicious! low star ratings are from spammers

Made this tonight for the first time. I followed the recipe exactly as written (using spinach instead of chard), and It was delicious! Low ratings for this recipe are from spammers and people who didn't follow the recipe. I hate it when people don't follow a recipe as it is written, and then give it a low rating. This was fast, easy, and delicious!

Fast, Easy, Delicious

No offense, but some folks

No offense, but some folks have different tastes. They may not be able to put to words exactly their experience, but some have legit complaints/concerns. One of the most common reviews is the recipe is bland. For people who are used to using a lot of spice and herbs in dishes this recipe would be bland and boring; there are no herbs or even salt used in the recipe. Salt livens flavor. Gnocci are potatoes and need salt or they are often bland, especially the crappy dried ones that need reconstituting. Peeps that don't agree with you aren't always idiots.
