Ingredients

  • 85g kale
  • 50g walnut pieces
  • 150ml olive oil
  • juice 1 lemon
  • 50g Parmesan, roughly chopped
  • 2 x 500g gnocchi
  • 4 thick slices ham, diced
  • 125g ball mozzarella, drained

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the kale, walnuts, oil, lemon juice and Parmesan in a processor and blitz until the kale is very finely chopped. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the gnocchi in 2 batches, for 2 mins each time.
