If you’re looking for a quick and delicious, meatless main dish, this Whole Wheat Gnocchi, Sweet Corn & Spinach in Cream Sauce is a definite keeper.
As I was searching the Better Homes and Garden’s website for my next inspiration, I came across a selection of 42 Healthy Dinner Recipes for under $3.00 per serving. That’s when I found this scrumptious recipe for Gnocchi, Sweet Corn & Arugula in Cream Sauce.
The recipe as written is fantastic, so if you want to stick with the original, you’re golden.
All I did was modify a few simple things…
For one, I switched out the regular gnocchi for whole wheat gnocchi. I figure if we’re going to call this dish healthy, we might as well go all in. I even added 1/2 of a diced red bell pepper for a little added veg and a nice pop of color.
The original recipe calls for 3 cups of torn fresh arugula, but I found a nice blend of baby spinach and arugula at my supermarket so I opted for that instead. I am sort of obsessed with spinach (and luckily so are my kids), so it totally worked out.
The last thing I did was to add 1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese to the cream sauce which gave it more of a creamy and silky alfredo taste.
I was pleasantly surprised at how quick this meal came together, as well as how cost friendly it was, not to mention healthy too! It doesn’t get much better than that, am I right?!
