This gnocchi skillet bake is everything you didn’t know that you needed. Just ask my family who dug into this meal before I could weigh the final thing out.
If you have never had gnocchi, they are little potato dumplings, otherwise referred to as heaven in your mouth. The soft pillows of flavor accompany any sauce. I pair them with this tomato basil sauce from Gia Russa. I add ground turkey to this to have a source of protein and cheese, of course. This recipe is truly not sponsored by Gia Russa, but my boyfriend, Adam, introduced me to the brand (that kid loves him some pasta) and I have been loyal to both him and Gia ever since. Great flavor, good ingredients. What more is needed? It’s that simple.
When asked if I prefer pasta to gnocchi, gnocchi wins every single time. There’s something about the texture that beats a limp noodle every single time. Ha limp noodle.
For the sauce, tomato basil is a classic but I think my absolute favorite is arrabiata sauce. Speaking of arrabiata sauce, I have a homemade recipe that I will be releasing in my cookbook! I am shooting for a September release so stay on the lookout!
But back to the gnocchi, if you haven’t tried it, now is the time. This recipe is a one pan meal, so the time you save cleaning up you will be savoring your new favorite dish.
