Creamy Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Spinach

Healthy Fact of the Day

Gnocchi is a great source of complex carbohydrates for sustained energy, while mushrooms and spinach provide important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The cream sauce adds richness and flavor, but you can also use a lighter cream or milk alternative for a healthier option.

Ingredients

 

  • 1 lb potato gnocchi
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 oz mushrooms (cremini or button), sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (optional)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

 

Instructions

 

  1. Cook the gnocchi according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.

  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

  3. Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté for 5-7 minutes until they start to brown and release their moisture.

  4. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.

  5. If using white wine, pour it into the skillet and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

  6. Reduce the heat to medium-low and pour in the heavy cream. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened.

  7. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until melted and combined.

  8. Add the cooked gnocchi and fresh spinach to the skillet. Gently toss everything together until the spinach is wilted.

  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  10. Serve the creamy gnocchi hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley and extra Parmesan cheese, if desired.
