An Italian delicacy! Easily make a deliciously rich white sauce to coat store-bought gnocchi.

1
box (9 oz) Green Giant™ frozen spinach
1
tablespoon butter or margarine
1/4
cup chopped onion
1
tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/4
cups half-and-half or milk
1
package (16 oz) shelf-stable gnocchi
1
cup shredded Gruyere cheese (4 oz)
1/2
cup shredded Muenster cheese (2 oz)
1/8
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1
large plum (Roma) tomato, thinly sliced
1
teaspoon olive oil

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 1 1/2-quart casserole with cooking spray. Cook spinach as directed on package; drain in colander or large strainer. Press to remove excess moisture. Set aside.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, melt butter. Add onion; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in half-and-half. Stir in gnocchi; heat to boiling. Remove from heat. Stir in cheeses and nutmeg.
  • 3 Spoon about 2 cups of the gnocchi mixture into casserole. Top with spinach, then remaining gnocchi mixture. Top with tomato slices; brush with olive oil.
  • 4 Bake about 30 minutes or until bubbly and browned on top and gnocchi is tender.

Expert Tips

Use sturdy paper towels or clean kitchen towels to wring as much moisture out of the spinach as possible.

Three cups frozen gnocchi from a 16-oz bag can be substituted for the shelf stable. Follow directions above.

Swiss cheese can be substituted for the Gruyere cheese.
