  • Step 1

    Start by mixing together the ingredients for the sauce until smooth and set to one side.

  • Step 2

    Heat 15g of the butter (set aside the rest for later) and olive oil in the pan over a medium high heat. Once the butter has melted add the gnocchi, salt, and pepper and fry, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes before adding the minced garlic. Fry for a further 3 minutes, stirring frequently until the gnocchi is evenly browned all over.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the sauce and spinach and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 10g of butter. If the sauce is too thick stir in a little of the cold water at a time until the desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately.
