baked gnocchi

In dinner on April 28, 2014 at 11:05 pm

this is an all-star dish i found in a food network magazine back around the holidays. it’s hearty enough for a vegetarian dinner, or you can serve it as a side with meat or a meatless sausage, like so:


plus, it has all my favorite qualities in a recipe: one dish, just a handful of ingredients, comes together quickly, tastes great and is super healthy.

all you need is:

one large or two small bunches of brocolini cut into bite-sized pieces
a pack or two of fresh (not frozen) gnocchi
1/2 of liquid (broth or water)
a couple cloves of garlic, minced or microplaned
salt, pepper, crushed red pepper
a couple glugs of olive oil
1/4 grated parmesean

mix everything together in an 8- or 9-inch baking dish.

bake, covered tightly in tin foil, at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. take the foil off and bake another 10 or so minutes. you don’t want it to dry out so much everything sticks to the bottom of the dish, but you do want most of the liquid to cook off.

shake a little more parm over the top and broil until just browned. delish.
