Gnocchi with Sauteed Shrimp and Spinach


I made this simple yet delicious meal the other day, thats what chow and chatter is all about, it can be put together in no time at all, with a bag of gnocchi on hand, some frozen shrimp and a couple of other ingredients. We all enjoyed it and Jasmine even ate the spinach :-)

Ingredients:

  • one pack of gnocchi
  • about a cup of frozen shrimp, I get wild caught 
  • one small bag of spinach or a bunch of fresh
  • 4 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 1/2 a red onion chopped
  • 15 chopped cherry tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • one teaspoon of Italian herbs
  • olive oil 
  • a pinch of crushed red chili pepper
Method:

  1. saute the onions and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes add the tomatoes and and let it reduce down 
  2. then add the herbs, chili pepper and shrimp with the spinach simmer for 15 minutes
  3. meanwhile boil the gnocchi in water until it floats 4-5 minutes drain and mix
  4. serve 


This is Jasmine's bowl as she also wanted me to take a picture of hers  :-)

  18. I have never been a big fan of gnocchi unless they're oh so light, but your combination sounds delicious. I think the best gnocchi I ever had were in a truffle oil!

  24. Your little girl is adorable!
    And the gnocchi looks delicious. I like mine with tomatoes, porcini, and a touch of basil. Simple, but good. Unfortunately, the boy is severely allergic to shrimp, so I can't cook with it...
