Preheat oven

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Lightly grease a 9x12-inch baking pan.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 4 tablespoons of butter and add 3 cloves of minced garlic. Cook for about 1 minute until aromatic.


Add tomatoes and seasoning


Add 2 cups of cherry tomato halves, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, a pinch of kosher salt, ground black pepper and red pepper flakes. Cook until tomatoes begin to burst and juices flow.

Add 4 cups of baby spinach and cook for a little while longer until it begins to wilt.


Add broth, cream, cheese and herbs


Add 1 cup of chicken broth, 1 cup of heavy cream, ½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese and ¼ cup of chopped mixed herbs. Lower heat to a simmer and cook for about 3 minutes until sauce is thickened and reduced.

Best butter gnocchi in the world and I made it myself, this site really helps to make me feel proud.

Paulina Trafton

I have to say this was good but expensive, mozzarella cheese is like 3/4 euros and the parmesan cheese too..

Agnes Tappa

Made this at the main meal and the vegetable pesto and parmesan soup as the appetizer, both were equally delicious.

Briar Dibitetto

Instead of cherry tomatos I put some sundried ones that were soaked in oil I think it goes better with this.
