1 pound pasta, gnocchi
frozen or homemade
½ tablespoon olive oil
plus 1 teaspoon, or other vegetable oil
2 cups butternut squash
peeled and thinly sliced, or sweet potatoes
2 medium shallots
thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic
or to taste, minced
14 ounces stock
vegetable, or low salt chicken broth
1 ½ tablespoons currants
or raisins, seedless
1 tablespoon sage
freshly chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried
black pepper
freshly chopped
8 cups spinach
or kale, Swiss chard, Collard, freshly and coarsely chopped
15 ounces chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 can, rinsed
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


If using frozen gnocchi, cook in a large pot of boiling water according to package directions. Drain, rinse and pat dry.

Heat ½ tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Stir in gnocchi and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl.

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil, squash, shallots and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add broth, currants, sage and pepper and mix well. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, stirring, until the squash is almost cooked through, about 7 minutes.

Stir in spinach, chickpeas and the gnocchi and cook, gently stirring, until the spinach is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes more. Drizzled with balsamic vinegar on top and serve warm.
