  • 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 this delicious gnocchi bolognese!


Storage Tips

Store leftover gnocchi bolognese in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. It’s so delicious the next day as all the flavors meld together and continue to taste amazing! 
If you have leftover bolognese sauce, store it in its own container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Use it for other pasta recipes, a potato gnocchi recipe, or another bag of this pillowy soft gnocchi made from cauliflower!
