  • 1tbs plus 1tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 16oz packet of gnocchi
  • 1 thinly sliced medium yellow onion
  • 4 minced cloves garlic
  • 6 cups chard leaves or you can use spinach
  • 15oz can diced Italian tomatoes
  • 15oz can white beans (rinsed)
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup shredded partly skimmed mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4tsp freshly ground pepper


  1. Warm 1tbs olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add gnocchi and cook until just beginning to turn golden for about 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add the remaining oil to the skillet and cook the onion over a medium heat for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add the water and garlic and cover and cook until the onion has softened. This should take about 5 minutes or so.
  4. Add the chard and cook until it begins to wilt, for about 2 minutes.
  5. Stir in the beans, tomatoes and pepper and bring to a gentle simmer.
  6. Return the gnocchi to the pan and sprinkle with both cheeses. Cook for about 3 minutes until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is melted.
