This deliciously cheesy gnocchi recipe, made with chorizo, spinach and mozzarella, works well with any pasta shapes. Double the recipe for a flavour-packed family-size supper.


  • 500g fresh gnocchi
  • 100g chorizo, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 200g baby spinach, washed and drained
  • 125g mozzarella


  1. Cook the gnocchi in salted boiling water for 2 minutes less than the pack instructions, then drain and add to a large ovenproof dish.
  2. 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.
  3. Stir in the garlic clove, the chopped tomatoes and baby spinach. Heat through to wilt the spinach, season to taste and pour over the gnocchi in the ovenproof dish.
  4. Scatter with mozzarella, torn into pieces, and bake for 10-15 minutes, until bubbling and golden.

  1. 8/9/15 – easy recipe to follow and good result. Needed something else other than the mozzarella as I didn’t get any flavour of cheese. Will add some provolone cheese next time. We scored it 8 out of 10.
