Found this recipe while searching for “quick and easy dinners.” It definitely meets both criteria and was mighty tasty to boot. The chorizo gives a bit of a kick, so if want, you could add less of that or do half chorizo, half hamburger. I followed the recipe as is and was pretty pleased.
- 16 ounces potato gnocchi
- 1/2 pound chorizo
- 3/4 cup chopped, jarred roasted red peppers
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 cups loosely packed baby spinach
Put a big pot of water on to boil. Gnocchi cooks fast, but the water takes forever to come to a boil. Set the burner on high and work on the rest of the dish while you wait.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown the chorizo. Add the roasted red peppers, onions and salt. Cook until the onions have softened, about 5-7 minutes. [NOTE: Your water should be boiling by now, so you can add the gnocchi and cook while the onions are softening]
Add the baby spinach and toss until leaves have wilted.
Drain and add the gnocchi. Stir everything around together.
Serve immediately! Enjoy!
