One-Skillet Gnocchi

This is the perfect easy weeknight dinner.  The gnocchi is cooked with tomatoes, spinach, and white beans in one pan.  Of course, I also make it super cheesy with parmesan and mozzarella!

Start by heating 1 Tablespoon oil over medium heat in a large skillet.  Add the gnocchi and cook for 5-7 minutes until they start to brown.  Transfer the gnocchi to a bowl and set aside.

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and onion to the same skillet over medium heat.  Stir in the garlic and broth.

Cover and cook for 4-6 minutes until the onion is soft.

Cover and cook until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese has melted.

    Gnocchi is one of my favorite dishes! That looks AMAZING!

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      It’s one of my favorites, too!

    this looks so good! we don’t do gnocchi much at our house, but now i’m inspired. :) question – is your husband a vegetarian? if not, does he ever add in meat to your dishes?

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      I love gnocchi! Jason ate meat for the first year of our marriage, but he’s been a vegetarian for 6 years now. It would be easy to add a chicken breast and make a chicken parm.

    Ah I love gnocchi so much! So glad you shared this recipe. I always get my gnocchi at Trader Joe’s and it’s so good! I want to try making it from scratch sometime soon :) I usually boil mine, but I’ll have to try pan frying too!

      I love that they get a little crispy on the outside when you cook them in a skillet!

    Yum – this one looks tasty! I’ll have to add to my grocery store list! Do you make the gnocchi yourself or buy a certain kind? Recommendations?

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      I don’t have a specific brand, but I buy it in the fresh pasta fridge section of the grocery.

    Wow! That looks sssoooo fantastic – I’ve just had my dinner and now want Gnocchi. My family aren’t big on it cause they say it tastes like funny potatoes (we are Irish). I’m going to do this recipe and convert them. Thanks

    • http://jenchoosesjoy.com jenchoosesjoy

      I will forever think of it as funny potatoes! Hope they like it!!!

    I made your gnocchi recipe last night and it was delish!! Super easy one pot wonder. I modified it a bit by adding some extra seasoning, a little left over pasta sauce I had laying around, and I didn’t have beans so I just left them out. It was so yummy and filling even without the beans! Loved it! Thanks for sharing. Good luck in Boston!
