In a large saute' pan simmer the sliced onion in about 1 cup and a half of olive oil.

Add garlic, shallots, crab and lobster and saute for 2 or 3 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Add gnocchi and cream stirring to coat all the ingredients.

Simmer on low for about 3 minutes, watch the cream doesn't stick.

Stir in chopped spinach and add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve in a bowl with your favorite shredded cheese on top. I use Parmesan or Asiago.

Vodka Sauce:

Add tomatoes, herbs, garlic and vodka in a sauce pot.

Simmer until tomatoes are soft and Vodka is almost evaportated. Stir occasionally.

Stir in heavy cream

Reduce this over a low heat stirring frequently.

Add salt and pepper to taste.
