Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500ml) milk
  • 2 tbs butter
  • ¼ cup of plain flour – regular or gluten free depending on your dietary requirements 
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Pinch chilli flakes

  • 2 cups mixed leaves to serve

Instructions

  • Turn on your oven grill on high.
  • Bring a saucepan of water to boil. Meanwhile, thinly slice the mushrooms and mince the garlic
  • Cook gnocchi according to packet directions. Drain and transfer the gnocchi to a baking dish.
  • Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, garlic and chilli flakes, then stir until the mixture thickens and starts to bubble.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in the milk. Return the saucepan to the heat and continue whisking for 4-5 minutes, until the sauce thickens. Stir through mushrooms and spinach. Once the spinach is wilted remove from heat.
  • Pour the sauce over the gnocchi, and stir through the cheese.
  • Place the baking dish in the oven under the grill for 5-10 minutes until cheese has melted and starts to brown.
  • Divide the gnocchi bake into 4 portions and serve with a side of mixed leaves. If there’s leftovers, pop them in the freezer in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Find gnocchi in the pasta aisle of your supermarket with the rest of the pasta. If you can’t track down gluten free gnocchi, check the health food aisle.
