The gnocchi is combined with hearty chard, stewed tomatoes, and white beans. The recipe calls for a topping of mozzarella and parmesan cheese, but if you are trying to eat healthy, simply omit them.

  1. 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  2. 1 16-ounce package gnocchi
  3. 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
  4. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  5. 1/2 cup water
  6. 6 cups chopped chard leaves, (about 1 small bunch) or spinach
  7. 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings
  8. 1 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed
  9. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  10. 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  11. 1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese


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