Directions

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

Tips & Notes

* Tip: Look for shelf-stable gnocchi near other pasta in the Italian section of most supermarkets.

    This is outstanding. I used whole wheat gnocchi and spinach instead of the chard. It was amazing. The only problem was eating only one serving! - 10/27/10

    I was a bit nervous saute'ing the gnocchi rather than boiling it (as it said on the package), but the dish turned out great!! The entire family enjoyed it. Very satisfying and filling. - 8/17/10

  • My college-age kids made this several times and came home raving about it. They said, "It tastes like a deconstructed pizza!" They're right! We serve the cheese on the side to choose the amount of cheese and leftovers taste better with freshly melted cheese (if there ARE leftovers!) - 5/17/12

  • This is a really delicious dish. And I don't even really like cooked spinach, but I guess since it is cooked from fresh, it was really good. - 10/26/11
