One-Skillet Gnocchi

This is the perfect easy weeknight dinner.  The gnocchi is cooked with tomatoes, spinach, and white beans in one pan.  Of course, I also make it super cheesy with parmesan and mozzarella!

Start by heating 1 Tablespoon oil over medium heat in a large skillet.  Add the gnocchi and cook for 5-7 minutes until they start to brown.  Transfer the gnocchi to a bowl and set aside.

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and onion to the same skillet over medium heat.  Stir in the garlic and broth.

Cover and cook for 4-6 minutes until the onion is soft.

Add the spinach and cook 1-2 minutes until it has wilted.

Stir in the tomatoes, beans, pepper and bring to a simmer.

Add the gnocchi, parmesan, and mozzarella.  Stir.

Cover and cook until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese has melted.

Serve and enjoy!

Of course, mine need a little more parmesan on top!


1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
1 (16 oz) package gnocchi
1 medium onion; chopped
4 cloves garlic; minced
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 (5 0z or 142 g) fresh spinach

1 (15 oz) can white beans; rinsed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat 1 T oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add gnocchi and cook, stirring often, until plumped and starting to brown; 5-7 minutes.  Transfer to a bowl.

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and onion to the pan and cook, stirring over medium heat for 2 minutes.  Stir in garlic and broth.  Cover and cook until the onion is soft, 4-6 minutes. Add the spinach and cook, stirring until wilted, 1-2 minutes.  Stir in tomatoes, beans, pepper, and bring to a simmer.  Stir in the gnocchi and sprinkle with both cheeses.  Cover and cook until the cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling, about 3 minutes.

  2. I made your gnocchi recipe last night and it was delish!! Super easy one pot wonder. I modified it a bit by adding some extra seasoning, a little left over pasta sauce I had laying around, and I didn’t have beans so I just left them out. It was so yummy and filling even without the beans! Loved it! Thanks for sharing. Good luck in Boston!
