Gnocchi with Spicy Shrimp and Spinach

I made this dish a while back I am getting a wee bit behind as I cook so much!, but this one is a great recipe to share. It was easy to make, healthy and scrumptious

  • one pack of small potato gnocchi
  • one pack or bunch of spinach
  • one small bowl of wild caught shrimp
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 red onion chopped finely
  • 4 tomatoes
  • some Italian herbs
  • a pinch of red chili flakes

  1. saute the onion and garlic in olive oil for 3 minutes
  2. then add the herbs, chili flakes and tomatoes and slowly simmer for 10 minutes until it reduces down to a paste.
  3. add the shrimp and spinach and simmer with a lid.
  4. in the meantime cook the gnocchi then mix, that's it a healthy meal in no time!
In fact I plan to make this again this week, we all enjoyed it.

What's on your dinner plans this week?
