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

  2. Add the remaining oil to the skillet and cook the onion over a medium heat for a couple of minutes.
