What? Is Krissie posting a recipe? Yes, yes she is.
I made this last week and made it again tonight for pictures. It is so yummy!
It really comes together quickly, so I had everything prepped and ready.
Set a pot of water to boil for the gnocchi.
In another skillet, melt 3 tablespoons of butter. (I don’t have problems using real butter. I make allowances for it and I savor it.)
When melted, add 2 tablespoons pinenuts
And 2 cloves of minced garlic
Let that brown about 2 minutes until everything is nice and fragrant.
Go ahead and put the gnocchi in the water. I prefer refrigerated gnocchi, but the store I was at only had frozen.
And then we start adding the spinach.
(I roughly chopped the spinach beforehand. I think it tends to clump up when left whole. But that’s totally optional.)
Add a handful at a time until it’s all in there and wilted.
I found this pint of “gourmet” tomatoes. I love them. I halved them and added to the spinach.
and about 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. I saved some of this for sprinking on top.
You know the gnocchi is ready when it’s floating at the top. I just used a straining spoon and transferred the gnocchi to the spinach miture.
stir it all up…
Put it in a pretty bowl and sprinkle a little cheese on top.
And you have a pretty, filling meat-free dinner!
