This recipe is a remake – and improvement on – one I made previously (although this one has somewhat better photos). It originally was inspired by a magazine article but has been tampered with multiple times since then. This recipe feeds two and goes brilliantly with a crisp white wine (if it’s been a day that requires such liquid refreshment).


  • 1 pack (500g) fresh gnocchi
  • 100g spinach
  • 75g smoked salmon
  • 50g cream cheese
  • 1/2 ball of mozzarella


Put a pan of water on to boil and when it starts to heat up, add in to the gnocchi. Leave it to boil.

In another large pan, throw in the spinach and let it wilt, then toss in the mozzarella and the cream cheese. Once the gnocchi is cooked drain it off, leaving a couple of tablespoons of the liquid in the pan. Add the cooked gnocchi and the liquid to the pan and make sure it’s hot through. Season (although go easy on the salt, the salmon has a lot if it).

Plate it up and cover liberally in smoked salmon, sit back and enjoy.
