Gnocchi with White Beans

I've never eaten gnocchi. While browsing the isles of a local store I saw Whole Wheat and Sweet Potato Gnocchi so I grabbed them. Within the week I was flipping through a magazine, saw a Gnocchi recipe and below is my version. This will definitely be made again!

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1  tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 package gnocchi
  • 1 package fresh organic baby spinach
  • 1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can Italian diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Daiya mozzarella cheese
  • 3 tablespoons  vegan Parmesan

In a large skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender.

Add gnocchi; cook and stir for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown.

Stir in spinach; cook until spinach is wilted.

Add the beans, tomatoes and pepper; heat through.

Sprinkle with cheeses; cover and removed from heat. Let stand for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Serve with a side salad and/or a nice slice of bread.
