Skillet Gnocchi with Chard & White Beans


This Skillet Gnocchi with Chard & White Beans is a really good recipe if you are looking for a quick yet wholesome and filling midweek meal. I love chard and I grow it every year with my kids in the garden. Chard is very nutritious with large, tender green leaves and thick, crisp stalks. We always look forward to the first chard harvest!

In this recipe, I start by cooking the gnocchi in olive oil. Then I sauté onions, garlic and add water. Next I add the chard leaves, tomatoes, beans and pepper before stirring through the gnocchi and cheeses. I serve this straight from the pan with a crisp green salad on the side.
