Skillet Gnocchi with Spinach and White Beans

  • 1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 (16 oz) package shelf-stable gnocchi
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 cups spinach
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 oz) can white beans, rinsed
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. In a frying pan over medium heat, add oil.
  2. Add gnocchi and cook, stirring often, until plumped and starting to brown, 5-7 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a bowl. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and onion to the pan and cook, stirring, over medium heat, for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in garlic and water.
  5. Cover and cook until the onion is soft, 4-6 minutes.
  6. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until starting to wilt, 1-2 minutes.
  7. Stir in tomatoes, beans, and pepper and bring to a simmer. Stir in the gnocchi and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan.
  8. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling, about 3 minutes.

After cheese has melted, you are ready to eat! This recipe serves 3-4 people to enjoy a delicious home cooked meal.
