This is one of our favorite dinners! All of my kids love it and my 3 year old begs for the gnocchi right out of the pan. I've tried spinach and chard. Both worked well. I've tried plain gnocchi and the whole wheat gnocchi made with sweet potato and I think I slightly prefer the whole wheat over the plain. The last time I made this, I used fire roasted tomatoes with garlic--loved it! Next time I make it, I think I will try an italian cheese blend instead of mozzarella for a little different flavor. You could also add a cup of shredded rotisserie chicken to stretch this meal and use up some leftovers.

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.

Easy + healthy + delish = A Keeper. I added black olives, used red onions instead of white and Hunt's fire roasted diced toms, added a splash of balsamic (totally addicted to that stuff), and after boiling my gnocchi finished it off in the saute pan (EVOO + ital seasonings + minced garlic). Harry's had bunches of rainbow swiss chard - great color combo. We had this as a main course. You could easily serve it along side a grilled chicken breast for your meat loving friends.
I used spinach, and I took some of the readers' suggestions: I boiled the gnocchi, did half red wine and half water, and added a spash of Worchestire. It was a very flavorful dish, and it was super easy to make. I will definitely be making it again.
Love this recipe--very comforting and yummy. I use spinach instead of swiss chard and Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes for more flavor.
This was very good and very filling. As some other readers suggest, I would also boil the gnocchi next time and might try the Muir Glen fire roasted tomatos as well ... it could have used a little zip.
