Ingredients
  • 9 oz fresh spinach gnocchi
  • 1 cup artichoke hearts
  • 1 cup small broccoli florets
  • ⅓ cup kalamata olives, roughly chopped
  • 1 roasted red pepper, roughly chopped
  • ¾ c cubed extra firm tofu OR white beans OR crumbled Italian sausage
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • ⅓ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup vegetable stock
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a 9x9" baking dish, evenly spread out 1 cup of the tomato sauce. Add the stock to the sauce and mix together - this extra liquid will help the gnocchi to fully cook.
  3. Sprinkle the gnocchi across the top sauce mixture. You want them to be mostly submerged in the sauce so they absorb the liquid and become tender and fully cooked.
  4. Next, add in all the other ingredients except the cheese and remaining sauce over the top of the gnocchi.
  5. Drizzle the top of the casserole with the remaining sauce. You want everything mostly covered with sauce, so it doesn't burn in the oven. Sprinkle on the grated parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake the gnocchi, covered with aluminum foil for about 35-40 minutes until fully cooked and warmed through. Remove the foil and place the gnocchi under the broiler for 3-5 minutes until the top is golden brown and some bits become crispy.
  7. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm!
