MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 7, 2015

"Surprisingly good if a little bland, but kinda gross leftover. Everything gets super mushy. I also didn't appreciate the occasional crunchy seed from a tomato. BTW, make sure to use a big pan. That little one in the picture is way not big enough to contain the spinach before it cooks down. Make sure to rip up the spinach into smallish pieces too."

"My gnocchi came out too mushy. Maybe it was because I added in the cooked sausage when I added the gnocchi, but the overall affect wasn't good."

"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!"
