- 100g chorizo, roughly chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 400g can chopped tomatoes
- 200g baby spinach, washed and drained
- 125g mozzarella
- Cook the gnocchi in salted boiling water for 2 minutes less than the pack instructions, then drain and add to a large ovenproof dish.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Add the chorizo to a dry frying pan over a medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 4 minutes, until the chorizo is sizzling and browning at the edges.

- Scatter with mozzarella, torn into pieces, and bake for 10-15 minutes, until bubbling and golden.
