Gnocchi With Spinach and Garlic

Total Time

This is a great recipe that my grandmother used to make often because it was so easy and so tasty! I usually double the batch because the leftovers are so much better after the flavors have melded. You would serve this like a spaghetti and sauce so the amount of sauce you use depends on if you like a heavy amount sauce and light noodles. Also, be sure to modify the amount of oil used if necessary for diet needs. We tend to use a bit more than most because we love how it blends with the other ingredients. The ingredients in this recipe are easy to modify for personal taste without it affecting the overall dish. For our family, I don't usually season. The garlic is enough for us. Enjoy!

Hello NewAtCooking, we really enjoyed eating this dish! Added crushed red pepper flakes, Italian Seasoning and used much less olive oil - used cooking spray with olive oil taste. Thank you for sharing this great recipe. Made & reviewed for "I Recommend ... A New Thread" from rickoholic83's recommendation, Diane :)

So easy and so tasty is absolutely correct! I threw this together last night while knowing I would need something quick to heat up tonight after our first track meet. I loved it and do agree it's better when allowed to sit. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, NAC! **Made for Spring PAC 2008**
