Recipe Details


One of our favorite ways to eat our greens is tossed with light, tender gnocchi. These Italian potato dumplings are ridiculously pillowy, and yes, sometimes we dream about them. Here, they are combined with sautéed organically sourced kale and fresh mozzarella. And because we love cheese so much, it’s topped with shredded mozzarella as well, then baked to melty, gooey perfection.
