Baked Gnocchi with Chorizo, Spinach & Mozzarella

On 21st July 2015, This was Dinner

This is probably the thing I’ve made most since I started the blog. Any excuse for chorizo, it’s a bake, it uses gnocchi and it has cheese in it. There’s no reason I couldn’t eat it every day. This has a nice kick of the Gran Luchito chilli paste I still haven’t used up.


  • Cut up a chorizo
  • Finely chop a garlic clove
  • Preaheat the oven to 190ºc (fan)
  • Get buffalo mozzarella*, baby spinach, tin of chopped tomatoes, smoked chilli paste & seasoning ready

* I wouldn’t normally use buffalo mozzarella but that’s what Mr S picked up


Blanch the gnocchi.

Heat a pan and add the chorizo. When starting to release it’s oils, remove and set aside.

Add the garlic to the pan and stir for a minute. Add the chilli paste then the tin of tomatoes. Stir well then add back the chorizo and season. Pop the spinach in and when it wilts, mix with the gnocchi and transfer to a baking dish.

Tear up the mozzarella and add to the dish. Bake for about 15 minutes.
