Creamy Spinach and Pine Nut Gnocchi

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

My favourite Italian dishes usually contain olives and sun-dried tomatoes - this is no exception. Use store-bought gnocchi for a quick weeknight feed or make your own for a special weekend feast. You'll need to use a big pan, because you add the gnocchi to the sauce at the end. From an AWW cookbook.

A friend had sent me a package of whole wheat gnocchi and this was the perfect recipe for it. The sun-dried tomatoes add such a crisp, fresh burst of flavor to the creamy spinach. This is a quick weeknight meal that really pleases.
