Gnocchi with Swiss Chard

Gnocchi is a really quick dinner idea and an easy way to add a little greens to your meal.  Any sort of greens will work, we just happened to have fresh Swiss Chard from the Farmer's Market on hand.

Gnocchi with Swiss Chard

            Olive oil and a bit of plant based butter for sauteing
1/2       onion, diced
2          garlic cloves, minced
1          15 oz. can diced tomatoes
1          15 oz. can tomato sauce
            Kalamata olives, chopped  (as many as you like, I used around 15)
2 1/2    cups Swiss Chard, rinsed and chopped
            pinch of basil (dried or fresh) and Oregano
1          pkg. frozen Gnocchi (prepared according to directions)
            salt and pepper to taste.

Heat oil and a bit of soy butter to sauté pan and add onions.  Saute until soft.  Add minced garlic for a couple minutes.  Add diced tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, tomato sauce and seasonings.  Cook on low heat for approximately 20-30 minutes, just to let the flavors blend.  Turn off head and add the Swiss Chard, stir to wilt.  Add the cooked Gnocchi then salt and pepper to taste
