Grilled gnocchi with broccoli and parma ham

Grilled gnocchi with broccoli and parma ham

Serves 2
Hands-on time: 25-30 min


  • 350g Italian cheese sauce, or similar
  • 500g Italian gnocchi, or similar
  • 60g parma ham slices, or similar
  • 200g spinach
  • 200g broccoli florets
  • 30g parmesan


  1. Put the spinach in a colander in the sink, then pour over boiling water from the kettle. Run cold water over to cool, then squeeze out the excess water.
  2. Heat the cheese sauce in a saucepan over a low heat.
  3. Heat the grill to medium. Cook the broccoli in a pan of boiling water for 2 minutes, then add the gnocchi and cook for another 3 minutes. Drain, return the gnocchi and broccoli to the pan, then stir in the cheese sauce and the spinach. Tear the parma ham into pieces and stir into the sauce.
  4. Pour into a 1 litre ovenproof dish, then grate over the parmesan. Cook under the grill for 5-10 minutes until golden and bubbling, then serve with a salad of dressed green leaves, if you like.

Tip: This dish works well with other sauces as well as cheese. Try a tomato and mascarpone one instead.
