Here’s one of those no-fuss recipes you can toss together and cook in one skillet. Ideal for a busy weeknight, it’s also good with crumbled Italian chicken sausage if you need to please meat-lovers. —Julianne Meyers, Hinesville, Georgia

MY REVIEW

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!!!

This was great. I added Italian sausage and some extra basil /oregano. I will definitely be making this again.

I added venison sausage to this, fresh basil, and used fresh mozzarella. So, perhaps I can't review the recipe accurately, but what I ended up with was great! I will likely make this again.

Very easy to make, and tastes good, a little bland. Might try adding white wine as others have suggested, and more garlic.. I did have to add chicken broth for the gnocchi to cook as it didn't cook in the 5-6 min. Added about 1/4 chicken broth with the tomatoes, beans and pepper. Let that cook for about 4 minutes and then added spinach. Yummy!
