Gnocchi with Turkey & White Beans
Gnocchi with Turkey and White Beans is a no fuss recipe that you can toss together and cook in one skillet within 30 minutes. Perfect for those busy nights!
I’m pretty excited about today’s post guys. Not only does this recipe take 30 minutes to whip up, but some of my food blogger friends and I have complied a list of 30 minute meals to help you during those hectic nights. Every first Thursday of every month my food blogger friends and I will share our 30 minute meals with you. How fun! 🙂
I know first hand that weeknights are the busiest. Why is that? Sometimes I don’t even have time to take out the trash or do that last load of laundry. Let alone make a meal. That’s where these wonderful food bloggers and I come in. We wanted to give you recipes that’ll have you in and out of the kitchen within 30 minutes tops.
My recipe for you today is a gnocchi skillet meal. Have you ever had gnocchi? If I’m being honest here, I only tried gnocchi because of this little blog. About two years ago when I first started, I wanted to have fun and unique recipes. Enter gnocchi. Gnocchi is considered a pasta, but it’s also a potato. Fun huh? Normally you’ll find it in your pasta aisle or the refrigerated Italian aisle.
Can I give you some advice? Prepare to take a picture of gnocchi with you when you go the grocery store. I can almost guarantee that the sales clerk will NOT, I repeat will not know what gnocchi is. I’ve had to ask 5 different people and show them pictures in order to find those delicious little dumplings. In fact this last time I was at the grocery store I had to show the guy where the gnocchi was and explain what it is. Hopefully I taught you something new today and now you can teach your grocery clerk something too.
Once you buy the gnocchi, everything else is smooth sailing. This dish literally takes no more than 30 minutes to make and the flavors are so good. I love that you can alter it to your taste buds. Make it spicy, add more veggies, make it with sausage…the list is endless.
Remember to head over and show my food blogger friends some love too!
Get the Recipe: Gnocchi with Turkey and White Beans
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 pound Italian seasoned ground turkey
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 package, roughly 16 ounces potato gnocchi
- 3/4 can, 15 ounces white beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can, 14.5 ounce fire roasted garlic tomatoes
- 3/4 cup baby spinach, roughly chopped
- 1-2 tablespoon fresh basil
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- salt & pepper to taste
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and ground turkey. Cook until crumbly, about 5 minutes. Add the oregano and garlic, cook an additional minute. Pour meat into a strainer and set aside for a few minutes. Add skillet back to the heat. If the pan is a little dry, add a little more olive oil and return to medium-high heat.
- Add gnocchi and sauté about 5-6 minutes, or until golden brown. Return the ground turkey to the skillet and mix in the beans, tomatoes and spinach. Cook for 2 more minutes. Add any salt and pepper at this time.
- Turn off heat, sprinkle with basil and both cheeses. Cover for a few minutes. This will allow the cheeses to melt.
- Serve and enjoy!

That looks so good! I love gnocchi, but I’ve only ever had it in restaurants. I’ve never even seen it in the store – but maybe I’m not looking in the right place! 🙂 Love this – I’ll have to find some gnocchi so I can try it!
Thank you Stacey! Look in the dry pasta section or the cold aisle where the fresh cheeses are. Some bigger chains don’t have them, but the little ma and pops should have them. Hope you find them soon. 😉

Is the gnocchi used in the recipe above the refrigerated variety or the packaged/ shelf stable variety. I keep thinking the shelf stable gnocchi would need to be boiled before using in the recipe.
Hi Debra, I actually use the refrigerator one in this recipe. I’ve tried the packaged gnocchi, but personally I like the cold gnocchi better. Hope that helps. 🙂 Let me know if you have any more questions.
I was wondering about the gnocchi as well…we have refrigerated, frozen, and dry packaged. All but the refrigerated/“fresh” gnocchi would need prepared ahead of time. May be helpful for the recipe to specify the type of gnocchi packaging used for this recipe. I kept rereading it thinking something must be missing until I got to the comment section. Pittsburgh clerks definitely know gnocchi though. ?. Large Italian community. I’m making this tonight using pumpkin gnocchi.
Hi Susan! You’re right, I’ll add what type of gnocchi I use. Hope yours turned out yummy! 🙂 Thanks!
This is my new go-to recipe!! The whole family loves it! So easy and quick for our busy lives! Thanks for sharing!
