Prep
Prep
1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Bring a large pot of water with a large pinch of salt to a boil. Finely chop the sage leaves. Halve, peel and grate half the onion into a large bowl. Halve and core the apple. Grate one half of the apple into the bowl with the grated onion. Thinly slice the remaining apple into ¼-inch wedges. Thinly slice the remaining onion.

Toss the apple wedges on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes until slightly softened.

3

Add the ground chicken to the bowl with the grated apple and onion. Stir to combine and season generously with salt and pepper. Form the mixture into golf ball-sized meatballs.

Heat another drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs to the pan and cook, rotating occasionally, until cooked through and golden brown on all sides, 8-10 minutes. Set aside.

5

While the meatballs cook, add the gnocchi to the boiling water and cook 7-9 minutes, until tender. Drain, reserving 1 cup pasta water. HINT: when the gnocchi float to the top of the water, they are likely done!

6

Heat another drizzle of oil in the same pan you cooked the meatballs in over medium heat. Add the sliced onion to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, until softened. Season with salt and pepper.

Add the gnocchi to the pan along with the sage, spinach, and 2 tablespoons butter. Toss until spinach wilts and sauce thickens, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir the Parmesan cheese, baked apple slices, and chicken meatballs into the pan. Divide between bowls and enjoy!
