This recipe is based on the one for gnocchi with spinach; to take a step up from those spinach gnocchi, try the tomato ones.
- Mix the spinach 1/3 cup tomato sauce and then puree to desired consistency; add a little water, if necessary. Simmer in a pan for about 5 minutes.
- Steam the gnocci by sprinkling them with water and placing into the microwave for 1 minute. Then mash the gnocchi until they're broken down, but still lumpy. Add olive oil and toss.
- Mix the spinahc and tomato sauce with the gnocchi, Crush the garlic and sprinkle on, then put into the oven for a few minutes to warm.
- During the last 30 seconds, sprinkle on the sage and Romano cheese.
If you feel adventurous, try to make your own gnocchi from scratch.
For a delightful addition, add a few slices of porcini mushrooms to the spinach and tomato sauce before simmering.
