Recipe Challenge Submission by Julie Zaruba-Fountaine Skillet Gnocchi

Skillet Gnocchi with Shrimp, Chard & White Beans 
Recipe adapted from Eating Well – I added the shrimp and extra Italian seasoning

 6 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes 
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 .5 teaspoon Italian seasoning
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 
12 oz. cooked shrimp  

Preparation 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, Italian seasoning and pepper and bring to a simmer. Stir in the gnocchi,  shrimp and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan. 
Cover and cook until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling, about 3 minutes.
