Ingredients
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon  extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 16-ounce package  shelf-stable gnocchi, (see Tip)
1   medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
4 cloves  garlic, minced
1/2 cup  water
6 cups  chopped chard leaves, (about 1 small bunch) or spinach
1 15-ounce can  diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings
1 15-ounce can  white beans, rinsed
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup  shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup  finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Directions
1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add gnocchi and cook, stirring often, until plumped and starting to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
2. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and onion to the pan and cook, stirring, over medium heat, for 2 minutes. Stir in garlic and water. Cover and cook until the onion is soft, 4 to 6 minutes. Add chard (or spinach) and cook, stirring, until starting to wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, beans and pepper and bring to a simmer. Stir in the gnocchi and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling, about 3 minutes.
Tip:
Look for shelf-stable gnocchi near other pasta in the Italian section of most supermarkets.

This dinner was delicious! I cook for 8 so I doubled the recipe and we had leftovers for everyone! Warmed up the next day was just as good. Quite filling- truly does make 6 servings and doesn't taste like "diet food". As a side note, do not be afraid of how much onion you have at the beginning--- it looks like a lot but it gets mixed in with everything else. I recommend to everyone!
