Baked Gnocchi Bolognese Skillet

I enjoyed this recipe very much - passed some on to family and they agreed as well. I loved that it was quick and easy with just a few ingredients, but delicious flavorful and relatively healthy too. You'll want a skillet that can go from the stovetop to the oven for this recipe.

  • 3 cups favorite spaghetti sauce with meat (I used marinara sauce)
  • 1 package (16-17 ounces) gnocchi (potato dumplings)
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • Dried seasonings to taste, I added a few pinches of dried oregano, garlic powder and dried red pepper flakes.
  • 1 cup reduced-fat Italian blend shredded cheese (with mozzarella)
  • Pinch or two of dried basil (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425F degrees. (The skillet goes from stovetop to oven.)
  • Add the sauce to an ovenproof skillet and cook over medium heat until it's warmed through and begins to bubble gently.
  • Stir in the gnocchi, spinach and any dried seasonings you like. (I added a little bit of dried oregano, garlic powder and red pepper flakes.)
  • Top with shredded cheese and a sprinkling of dried basil.
  • Place in oven and bake until cheese on top is browned, about 30 minutes.
