  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 pinch Spice Islands® Crushed Red Pepper

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon Spice Islands® Oregano

  • 1 (8 ounce) package curly kale, stemmed and torn into 2-inch pieces

  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 2 (10 ounce) packages Green Giant® Cauliflower Gnocchi

  • 4 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 6 ounces fresh mozzarella, torn into pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add garlic, crushed red pepper, salt, and oregano and cook, stirring throughout, 2 minutes. Add kale a handful at a time, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. Bring just to a boil; remove from heat.

  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil over high heat. Add gnocchi and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and add to tomato sauce mixture. Add 2 tablespoons Parmesan, stirring to combine, about 1 minute. Transfer to an 8x8-inch baking dish. Top with mozzarella and remaining Parmesan.

  4. Bake until cheese is golden brown and mixture is bubbling, about 15 minutes.
