Gnocchi with fresh veg and tomato sauce

This is a quick filling meal full of veg. This recipe is a cheat since I did not make gnocchi from scratch, but the PC variety did the trick – and it only takes 2 minutes to cook.

Heat olive oil (1-2 tbs) in a skillet. Chop and saute about:

  • 3/4 c broccoli
  • 3/4 c cremini mushrooms
  • 1/2 zucchini
  • small yellow pepper

In the meantime, get a pot of salted water on the burner and ready to boil.

When the veg is tender, add your favorite tomato sauce and mix it all together (I used 1/2 jar of 7 veg sauce). Season with salt and pepper and a pinch of red pep flakes to spice it up.

When your water is fully boiling, throw in the gnocchi and set your timer for 2:22 (I always set my timer like that for easy button hitting…). As soon as your timer goes off (a few gnocchis should be floating), strain it and run cold water over them to stop the cooking.

Once your veg/sauce mixture is warmed through in your skillet, add in the gnocchi and toss. Serve immediately. Top with shredded cheese (we used our fave, jalapeno havarity), This recipe could be used with any combo of veg and sauce. Bacon would also be a tasty addition although we were pleased just as it was =)
