Wonderful comfort meal but needs some minor changes. I added a healthy pinch of red pepper flakes, cubed the mozzarella cheese and topped the dish with a chiffonade of fresh basil. Really perked up the flavors.

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.
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.
