Skillet Gnocchi with Chard and White Beans


Skillet Gnocchi with Chard and White Beans

1 Tbsp + 1 tsp olive oil, divided
1 16 oz pkg potato gnocchi
1 Medium yellow onion, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c water
6 c chard leaves or spinach ( I used fresh spinach leaves)
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning
1 (15 oz) can white beans
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 c shredded mozzarella
1/4 c shredded Parmesan

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

The flavor was good here, but somehow I messed up the gnocchi. I've cooked gnocchi before, but this time, it all started to break apart and just mush in the pan. I don't think I thawed it all the way before I cooked it which probably had something to do with it.

YUM!!! I can't wait to try it---try using just regular "dried" gnocchi next time instead of frozen. Every time I use frozen it gets slimy too.
