Gnocchi with garlicky spinach and butternut squash

This isn't so much a recipe for gnocchi as it is a recipe for a side-dish made with already-made gnocchi. :-)

Anyway, I threw it all together last night and was very happy with the results.

1 package gnocchi (I find it at Trader Joe's and even SuperTarget)
~1 Tbsp olive oil (Pam works ok too but things do end up a bit drier)
2 tsp minced garlic
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup spinach, chopped (I used fresh spinach that had been frozen in the freezer)
1 cup butternut squash cubes, cooked (in oven at 400F about 30min)

1. Heat oil in skillet, add onions and garlic. (Heat should be ~medium)
2. Add gnocchi and cook until browned and slightly crispy on the outside.
3. Stir in spinach until wilted, add butternut squash and cook until heated.
4. Salt and pepper to taste.

Additional comment added 2/16: Made this again over the weekend, but added cooked bacon to it and it was delicious!
