  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 (16 oz.) pkg. gnocchi
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup water
  • 6 cups chopped chard leaves
  • 1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings
  • 1 (15 oz.) can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • ½ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add gnocchi and cook, stirring often, until plumped and starting to brown (5-7 minutes). Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and onion to the pan and cook, stirring, over medium heat, until onion begins to soften (3-4 minutes). Stir in garlic and water. Cover and cook until the onion is soft (4-6 minutes). Add chard and stir until starting to wilt (1-2 minutes).
  3. Stir in tomatoes, beans, and pepper and bring to a simmer. Stir in the gnocchi and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling (3-4 minutes).
