Monday Night Gnocchi

Every monday night I have a dinner date with the lovely Miss Jo. We catch up, watch our stories and nosh on some pretty good grub, seeing as Jo is quite a cook. A couple of weeks ago she made this delicious gnocchi dish that hit all my sweet spots, and I’ve been itching to have a go ever since. This is my version; a no fuss, super quick, super easy yet satisfying and wholesome after work meal.

250g Gnocchi

½ white onion

1 small courgette

4-5 chestnut mushrooms

½ tsp chilli powder

a couple of handfuls of spinach

1 tub cream cheese (I used one with herbs)

lemon juice


  • Season your pan with olive oil, cracked black pepper and sea salt.
  • Chop your vegetables fairly finely and fry off.
  • Meanwhile, pop your gnocchi into a pan of boiling water. When they float to the surface, they’re done! Drain most of the cooking water and set aside.
  • Once the vegetables are fried, add your chilli powder and spinach to the pan. Stir gently until the spinach has wilted down. Turn off the heat.
  • Add the gnocchi to the pan and stir through, before pouring the whole lot into an overproof dish.
  • Thin the cheese in a bowl by beating with the lemon juice and reserved cooking water. Add to the ovenproof dish and stir through until mix is combined.
  • Grate Parmesan over the dish and pop under a hot grill for 10-20 minutes until golden.
  • Serve with a rocket salad, and gleefully stuff your chops.
