  • 1 lb ground beef or Italian sausage
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 bags Trader Joe's cauliflower gnocchi
  • 2 cups marinara sauce I like Rao's Homemade
  • 2 cups raw spinach
  • ½ cup Original flavor Nutpods creamer or cashew cream, or regular cream if you tolerate dairy
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cook the ground beef (or sausage) in a non-stick pan over medium heat until completely browned and cooked through. Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in the same pan and add the frozen gnocchi in a single layer. Cover the pan and let them cook for 3-4 minutes (without stirring). Flip them and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until browned. Add the ground beef back to the pan along with the marinara sauce. Stir the spinach in while cooking over medium heat until it is wilted.
  • Stir in the Nutpods (or cream of choice). Add salt and pepper to taste (and parmesan if that's your thing!) - Enjoy!
