I have been cooking different stuff these days and I have also been cooking a lot. In a couple of days I will start a new job and I don’t know how much time, nor work I will have. Tofucado is great and I love every bit of it, but I’m a bit scared of not being able to do both. Which is why I have been planning for two weeks. Yay for planning. Since I planned a lot of recipes and cooked a lot, I had to choose which one to publish today. And the chosen recipe was my 30 minute healthy gnocchi spinach casserole recipe.

You don’t need much for this recipe, but you still need a couple of things:

  • A handful of spinach, or a bunch of them. How do you even measure spinach? I always throw a lot in there and end up with literally 1g in total, so yeah. Just add a lot, cause either way it will vanish into…nothing.
  • Onion: I used a gigantic yellow onion. If you are using smaller ones, I’d say use 2 medium ones.
  • A whole other bunch of mushrooms: I know I said this is a spinach casserole but who doesn’t like mushrooms too. I added around 2 cups of mushrooms.
  • Gnocchi, gnocchi and more gnocchi. I used “ready to sautĂ©” gnocchi. But if your gnocchi are different, follow package instructions!
  • Spices: Garlic powder cause garlic powder rules. Some paprika, and salt and pepper to taste, the usual.
  • A bit of tomato sauce.
  • A bit of cream. Just to get that extra creaminess.

How to cook this Gnocchi Spinach Casserole?

Super easy as well. As per most of my recipes. I don’t have time for complexity lately.

First, we will cook the onion and the mushrooms. We will add the spinach at the end with the gnocchi. When the onion & the mushrooms are cooked, we will set aside in a bowl.

Cooking the Gnocchi Spinach Casserole
So many mushrooms, perfection

If you are using the same gnocchi type as me, aka the ones that need to sauté in a pan, you will want to do this first and then mix in the veggies (+ the spinach!).

Once the gnocchi are golden and super appetizing, add in the spinach and the onion&mushroom mix. Mix super well, then add the cream & tomato sauce. Cook for a bit, then serve and enjoy this deliciousness.
