  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 large shallots - diced
  • 4 cloves garlic - minced
  • 4 Roma tomatoes - chopped
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes - chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces gluten-free gnocchi
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup half-and-half
  • 1 ½ cups chicken breast - cooked and shredded
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese - shredded


  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots to the skillet and cook until starting to soften- approximately 3-4 minutes. Mix the garlic in with the shallots and cook for 1 minute, stirring continuously.
  • Add the fresh tomatoes and the sun-dried tomatoes to the skillet and stir to combine. Sprinkle with the red chili flakes, salt, and pepper, and cook until tomatoes are hot and starting to soften (approximately 4 minutes).
  • Add the gnocchi to the tomatoes and mix well to combine. Use a large wooden spoon to gently break apart any gnocchi that may be stuck together.
  • Add the chicken broth and the half-and-half to the gnocchi. Mix well to combine. Add the shredded chicken. Cover and cook on medium-low until gnocchi is warmed through and sauce is simmering, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Remove the lid cover and add the spinach. Continue to cook just until the spinach has wilted.
  • Remove skillet from heat and sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese and salt and pepper, to taste, if needed. Serve and enjoy!
