I’m all about making food from scratch. But, sometimes it’s Wednesday. During the week I just want food, and I want it now! So, I’m always on the look out for new ideas that are fast and delicious. I made this the other day and Rick and I both really enjoyed it – and I only spent about 15 minutes in the kitchen – success! Whip up a salad to go with this and you’re good to go!
Crispy Gnocchi with Pesto, Tomatoes and Goat Cheese
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
1 package (16 oz.) gnocchi
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
3 tbsp. pesto
1 package (3.5 oz.) goat cheese, crumbled
(all measurements can be adjusted to taste)
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the gnocchi in a single layer and cook, undisturbed, until golden and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes; turn and cook, tossing occasionally, until golden all over, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the pesto. Top with the goat cheese.
