1tbs plus 1tsp extra virgin olive oil

16oz packet of gnocchi

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.
