Ingredients

1/2 recipe gnocchi from Jamie Oliver's book: "Cook with Jamie" (or double recipe below if using a full recipe of gnocchi.)
zest from 1/2 fresh lemon
3 tablespoons butter
about 15 leaves baby spinach, chopped (reserve about 7-10 very small leaves, whole, for garnish)
3/4 cup vegetable stock
additional salt to taste (optional)
Parmesan cheese curls for garnish (optional)


I have always wanted a great gnocchi recipe and requested & received Jamie Oliver's new book: "Cook with Jamie" for my birthday. I created this sauce to accompany a modified version of Jamie Oliver's gnocchi recipe "a basic recipe for the lighted potato gnocchi" (modifications included the use of freshly ground whole wheat flour in place of white flour.)


He also had a wonderful recipe, similar to this sauce, but I was unable to find the key ingredient, and it had a lot of butter. This is my modified version of that as well.
