I love it when people introduce me to new food I have never tried. I had heard of gnocchi but didn't really know quite what it was. I'm not a very adventurous eater so this wasn't surprising. My friend made this for us and we loved it. Then when she told me how easy it is, I loved it even more! Its from a Trader Joes recipe book so you can buy everything you need from TJ's. Another great perk!
1 (17.6 oz) bag dry Potato Gnocchi
1 cup Organic Vodka Sauce, or combine ¾ cup marinara with ¼ cup heavy cream
½ cup frozen peas, thawed
2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
2 Tbsp bread crumbs
1.) Preheat oven to 400 F
2.) Bring salted water to a boil and add gnocchi. When gnocchi float to the top, they are done. Drain.
3.) In a medium bowl, combine sauce, peas, basil, and ¼ cup parmesan. Stir in gnocchi.
4.) Lightly spray or oil a small casserole dish (8 inch oval). Transfer gnocchi mixture to casserole. Top with remaining cheese and bread crumbs.
5.) Bake uncovered for 10 minutes.
