"while flavor was good, my family felt that the textures were all the same, mainly mushy with the beans and gnocchi. it was decided that this was not a remake recipe."

"I made this dinner last night and it was delicious! This is my first experience with gnocchi. I had 8 oz white mushrooms that needed to be used so I added them and a second can of diced tomatoes. Both were great additions. I highly recommend this recipe!"

"Delicious!!!....this dish can handle more garlic...nothing better than beans, greens and lots of garlic...will try adding the white wine but great without it. Both times making this, I doubled the recipe, and it worked out fine...just needed a deep pot. Food should be delicious!!!"
