If you’re like me, you love to enjoy amazing food but try and do it in the easiest possible way. So when I heard that Trader Joes had cauliflower gnocchi; I needed to try it immediately. The first thing that came to my mind was making a pesto gnocchi. Ever since I started my diet I wanted to avoid carbohydrates so I really missed my pasta.
With this recipe all you will need is a little butter, a pesto from your favorite store, and a choice of meat that you would like to top off your gnocchi with. In my case we pre-made some turkey meatballs.
All you’ll have to do is remove the gnocchi from the bag (doesn’t need to be thawed), then melt some butter on a skillet, and once its hot sauté the gnocchi for 10-12 minutes.
Once its golden brown you’ll add your pesto sauce and the meat to your skillet. Finally throw your portion to your dish and garnish with a little parsley and parmesan cheese. If you don’t want to dirty a pan, you can also bake it at 420 degrees for 15 minutes and then throw your sauce and meat into the tray for the last five minutes.
My favorite part of this dish is that its so easy to make and its delicious. Its also a great way to avoid carbs and make a pasta dish a little healthier.
