Gnocchi with Spinach and Pepper Sauce

Serves: 5

Here’s a short version of Spain’s favorite romesco sauce. It has so many smoky flavors!



16 oz. whole-wheat potato gnocchi
5 oz. baby spinach
1½ oz. Manchego cheese, grated (about ¼ cup plus 2 tbsp.), divided
3 tbsp. olive oil, divided
½ cup chopped jarred roasted red peppers
¼ cup smoked almonds
1 plum tomato, chopped
1 slice baguette, torn (about ½ oz.)
1 clove garlic
½ tsp. paprika
¼ tsp. crushed red pepper
2 tbsp. sherry vinegar



1. Cook the gnocchi according to the package directions, but do not salt the cooking water. Drain and return the gnocchi to the pot. Over medium heat add the spinach, ¼ cup of the cheese and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Cover and let stand until the spinach wilts, 2 to 3 minutes. Gently toss to combine evenly.
2. In a food processor, combine the red peppers, almonds, tomato, baguette, garlic, paprika, crushed red pepper, vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and pulse until smooth, about 1 minute.
3. Divide the gnocchi mixture among 5 bowls. Top evenly with the sauce and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons cheese.
