Another Swiss Chard Dinner

The past two months have been super busy - from moving to interviews to traveling - I have been slacking in the cooking department!

P takes a huge test tomorrow, so I wanted to make him something goooooood to help him keep truckin with his studying. Hah.

I found this recipe on Real Simple, and decided to mix it with this recipe since I have been wanting to use swiss chard again ever since we made Joe's Special. Sooo I guess I will call this Gnocci with Sausage, Swiss Chard and Onions.


2 9-ounce packages refrigerated gnocchi or one 17.5-ounce package shelf-stable gnocchi

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped

1 pound Italian sausage, casings removed

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 5-ounce bag baby spinach

Swiss chard

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated Parmesan, plus more for serving


1. Cook the gnocchi according to the package directions. Drain, reserving ¼ cup of the cooking liquid.

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the sausage and cook, crumbling it with a spoon, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

4. Add the garlic, spinach, swiss chard, salt, and pepper and cook, tossing frequently, until the spinach wilts, about 3 minutes.

Add the gnocchi, the reserved cooking liquid, and the Parmesan and toss. Divide among individual bowls and sprinkle with additional Parmesan.

Yum in my yum!
