Method
  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat and brown the gnocchi for 8–10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the gnocchi from the pan and set aside.
  2. Put the mushrooms in the pan and cook for 10 minutes, or until softened.
  3. Reduce the heat and stir through the garlic, chilli flakes, sun-dried tomato, beans and spinach.
  4. Add the water and cook until the spinach has just wilted.
  5. Return the gnocchi to the pan and heat through.
  6. Season with pepper and parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
If the mixture is a bit dry, add a little extra water to stop the gnocchi sticking
