Easy Marinara Gnocchi Dinner

Cauliflower Gnocchi dish coming at ya tonight! Before we go into the recipe you will need to visit Lil Sipper’s blog to see how I made her Cauliflower Gnocchi recipe! I ended up using about 5 cups of cassava flour with an entire head of cooked cauliflower. BIG mistake because it took me forever to make them, but now I also have a stock pile of gnocchi in my freezer. IMG_2728.PNG


Organic Ground Beef

1 tbsp avocado oil

1 tsp Italian Seasoning

1/2 white onion, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt/Pepper to taste

Roa’s Marinara Sauce

2 cups Spinach

Cooked Cauliflower Gnocchi

2 tbsp Grass fed butter (for gnocchi)


After you’ve made and cooked your cauliflower gnocchi from Lilsipper’s page, saute about 10-15 gnocchi in grass-fed butter (or your choice of fat) on medium high heat. You will want to brown them on both sides for a few minutes so they crisp up a bit. Also, toss in your spinach until it wilts with the gnocchi. This takes about 1-2 minutes. Set cooked gnocchi and spinach aside on a plate or bowl because we are going to add them in to finish the dish.IMG_2729.PNG

With 1 tbsp oil (I like to use avocado but you could use any fat source) cook your garlic and diced onions for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant on medium heat. Add in your ground beef and cook until brown or cooked through.

Drain any fat from the beef! Add in 1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce (I love Roa’s marinara). Add in your gnocchi and wilted spinach from earlier. Give it a good stir. Serve and top with parmesan cheese (optional)! Serves 4.
