Gnocchi with Fresh Spinach

Quick and easy to make, this pan-fried gnocchi is very satisfying.


500g gnocchi

11/2tbsp olive oil

100g chopped sundried tomatoes

1tbsp butter or oil from sundried tomatoes

3 cups fresh spinach

1tsp dried sage

Salt and pepper to taste

1tbsp freshly grated Parmesan plus extra for serving


  1. Cook gnocchi according to the instructions on the packet, reserving around a cup of the cooking water. Allow the gnocchi to drain on paper towels.
  2. Heat the butter or sun-dried tomato oil and the olive oil in a skillet, and once hot, add the gnocchi in a single layer. Cook on one side until crispy and golden brown for about two minutes before turning over the gnocchi. Add the garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and salt and pepper and gently mix, cooking for another minute.
  3. Add the spinach to the pan with a third of the cup of gnocchi water. Cover the pan and cook until the spinach begins to wilt for around a minute. Remove the lid and add Parmesan, stirring to combine and serve immediately with extra Parmesan.
