Tomato Garlic Gnocchi with Beef
1 package Plain gnocchi (500g)
1 lb beef (stir fry strips, flat iron steak cut into strips, or ground beef)
1 small tin (425g) plain tomato sauce or strained tomatoes
- Drizzle of olive oil
2 cloves garlic, in thin slices
1 onion, cubed
½ c cherry tomatoes, cut into little wheels
2 c baby spinach
1 tsp salt
15 cracks fresh black pepper
- Butter for sauté
Fresh grated Parmesan to garnish
Step by Step Instructions
Put a large pot of salted water on to boil for the gnocchi.
Melt a bit of butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat and sauté the onion and garlic until the onion becomes translucent – about 5 minutes, then add the beef, salt, and pepper, and sauté until the beef is browned then lower the heat and simmer until the gnocchi is ready.
When the water is boiling add the gnocchi and cook to package instructions (usually about 2 minutes, until the gnocchi floats).
When the gnocchi is done drain it and add it to the skillet with the sauce along with the tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil. Mix well, then stir in the spinach and stir until the spinach is wilted, then serve into pasta bowls, sprinkle with a generous amount of fresh grated Parmesan, and enjoy!
