I made this for the first time and loved it! It tasted very good (very creamy without the cream). It was a great way to eat chard because it disguises it well.

408 Reviews for Skillet Gnocchi with Chard & White Beans
My grocery store may or may not carry Gnocchi...unfortunatly the employees didn't know what it was and were not much help. So, I tried making with Hominy and White Beans and it was great! I also threw in some sliced Turkey Sausage and it was a very filling meal, even my picky eight year old enjoyed. Really easy to make and clean up, and good leftovers for quick healthy lunches. I will make this again, hopefully with find Gnocchi next time.
This recipe sped to our top ten favorite meatless meals when it first hit our lips! I seasoned the gnocchi with salt and pepper as it was browning- and added garlic powder at the last minute before pulling it off the stove.
On the second make- I waited to add the gnocchi during the plating process because we loved the crispiness rather than soaking during cooking. Like many others, I used chopped frozen spinach instead of chard with yummy results.
I garnished it with thinly sliced green onions and set out red pepper flakes to spice it up.
Finally, I recommend you make a pan of quick Jiffy corn bread for a complete southern spread!
I was surprised that the recipe calls for using extra virgin olive oil as I think it's much healthier to sauté using regular olive oil. I used fire roasted diced tomatoes, it added some spiciness that other reviewers mentioned it needed. It was a very tasty, very easy to cook dish. Great recipe.
