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. "

Great start of a recipe

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.

Quick, Easy, Mostly shelf stable
Nutritious comfort food!

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.

quick dinner option

I use spinach since it's a bit easier to get past the kids, but all of us love this dish!

Quick and Delicious

This is one of my standard go-to recipes when we're wanting something good, quick, and nutritious. My husband and I love it. I use organic baby spinach instead of the chard though.


I added a little crushed red pepper but other than that followed the recipe. It is a keeper in my household.
