Gnocchi with White Beans

Here’s one of those no-fuss gnocchi recipes you can toss together and cook in one skillet. Ideal for a busy weeknight, it’s also good with crumbled Italian chicken sausage if you need to please meat lovers.

1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 16oz package potato gnocchi
1 15-oz can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
