    Wonderful. Flavorful and filling. The gnocchi cooked fine in the pot as everything simmered the last 15 minute; no need to precook it. We added the mozzarella cheese to part of each serving at the table and decided we like the dish better without. We had crusty bread on the side to soak up sauce, and also had some fruit (red grapes and sliced apple). Thanks, Julia, for featuring this in the recent video of 15 one pot recipes.

    I love this recipe! I wasn’t sure if the gnocchi should’ve been pre-cooked or not so I just boiled them first before adding them to the recipe. Came out delicious! Will make again!

  3. Amazing

  4. This meal was super easy to prepare. Only thing I left out was the onion which my boyfriend doesn’t like. It was delicious, will definitely be making this again in the future

  5. I made this tonight and it was so SO good! I didn’t have any spinach so I substituted in some fresh cubed zucchini. Even my picky husband loved it! Thanks for a great recipe Julia!

  6. Very yummy and easy to make! My picky 2 year old even liked it. I will definitely make it again.
