Looking at that skillet full of cheesy, pasta goodness is making you think about dinner.
Same thing happened to me.
This is of course ages ago when I first stumbled upon one of my favorite gals out there in bloggyland.
In case you haven’t yet, meet Julie from Mommie cooks
And that pan filled with deliciousness was what I saw the first time I laid eyes on her site…I was hooked.
And I finally made it.
The boys loved it.
Big thumbs up.
Even Keegan ate some spinach.
You have to try her Gnocchi Skillet Dinner
1 Pkg of Gnocchi
1 Pd of Ground Turkey or Italian Sausage
1 Onion, Diced
3 Cloves of Garlic
1 Can of White Kidney Beans
1 Bag of Fresh or 2 Cups of Frozen Spinach ( I used fresh)
1 28 Oz Can of Marinara Sauce
1 tsp of Basil
1 tsp of Oregano
1/8 tsp of Crushed Red Pepper
1/4 Cup of Vegetable Broth
2 Tbsp of White Wine
1 Pkg or Marinated Mozzarella or 2 Cups of Shredded
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Cook your gnocchi up according to package directions. While your gnocchi is heating up, grab your turkey or sausage and cook it up along with the onion and garlic on medium high heat. If you choose to go vegetarian, simply leave the meat out and add in a tablespoon or two of butter with your onion and garlic.
Once the meat is cooked through, turn the heat down to medium and add in the beans and the spinach.
Cook the beans and spinach until heated through and then add in the marinara, basil, oregano, crushed pepper, vegetable broth and white wine.
Stir it all together, let the dinner heat up one more time and throw in some salt and pepper to taste. Finally place the mozzarella on the top of the skillet dish, put the top on the pan and let it sit for about five minutes until the cheese is melted.
I was also thinking it would be great to make this dish with some stuffed tortellini? Maybe some 4 cheese or roasted mushroom? Mmmm! What do you think? I may try it soon.
