Garlic & Tarragon Gnocchi w Roasted Tomatoes, Wilted Spinach & Walnuts

Garlic & Tarragon Gnocchi w Roasted Tomatoes, Wilted Spinach & Walnuts
For this meal I used home made spelt gnocchi with tarragon, but you can also use pre fab gnocchi, if you want. Fresh gnocchi actually keep quite well in the freezer, so I like to make a double batch and freeze them. (Unless you have big strong hands, don't make much more, because then making the dough becomes quite a chore).
