Skillet Gnocchi with Spinach and White Beans

This recipe was featured in the December 2010/January2011 issue of Taste of Homes Healthy Cooking magazine on page 51

Olive Oil
1 lb gnocchi, fresh made or frozen, cooked
1 medium onion, chopped
2 - 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large bunch spinach (or Swiss Chard), chopped
1 can tomatoes with Italian seasonings (I use regular canned tomatoes and Italian seasoning, most seasoned tomatoes contain added sugar)
1 can white beans, rinsed and drained
dash black pepper
1/2 c. mozzarella, grated (optional)
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)

Saute onion and garlic in olive oil 2 minutes. Add gnocchi and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly browned in spots. Add spinach (or Swiss Chard) and cook, stirring, until spinach is wilted. Add can of tomatoes and white beans. Add pepper to taste. If using, top with both cheeses, cover and remove from heat. Leave covered until cheese melts.

Several additions from other people and my own experimenting are:
Cooked Italian Sausage
Marinated Artichoke hearts
a little cream with the tomatoes
Italian seasoning
